ESTOFS WMO Header
NCEP Home > NCO Home > Production Management Branch > ESTOFS WMO Headers

NCEP distributes output from the Extratropical Surge and Tide Operational Forecast System (ESTOFS) model in GRIB2 on grids for the 2.5km NDFD CONUS grid and the 1.25 km NDFD Puerto Rico grid. This data is being disseminated via NOAAPORT and the SBN with the following WMO headers:

T1T2A1A2ii   CCCC

where:

CCCC = KWBM and M is Ocean Model/Extra tropical Storm Surge

See ON-388 Appendix A for WMO headers with NCEP GRIB information at the following link: http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/docs/on388/appendixa.html

T1= E

  T2 specifies the parameters as following:

     E - ELEV       (Parameter 194)     Ocean Surface Elevation Relative to Geoid
     H - ETSRG    (Parameter 193)     Extra Tropical Storm Surge
     C - ETCWL   (Parameter 250)     Extra Tropical Storm Surge Combined Surge and Tide

  A1 specifies the grid id as follows:

     I  is for CONUS grid (2.54km)
     P is for Puerto Rico grid  (1.25km)

A2 specifies the forecast hours as follow:

A=00 forecast hour; B=01,02,03;  C=04,05,06; D=07,08,09; E=10,11,12; F=13,14,15; G=16,17,18;
