MM5 Real Time Run Information

 

We are currently running the MM5 daily, initializing it off of the eta_104 model, received from the NWS.

The MM5 is a NON-HYDROSTATIC model (for more specifics, visit their website).

We are running a 60 hour forecast, on a domain covering the entire United States, with one nested domain over Madison, WI.

The outer domain uses 90 km horizontal resolution, the nested domain uses 30 km horizontal resolution, and there are 23 vertical levels.

Click to view the Outer Domain, Inner Domain, or Both Domains.

We are currently using the Grell cumulus parameterization, simple ice physics, and the MRF planetary boundary layer.
