HIRESW WMO Headers
NCEP Home > NCO Home > Production Management Branch > HIRESW WMO Headers

NCEP distributes output from the High Resolution Window(HIRESW) model via NOAAPORT and the SBN with the following WMO headers:

T1T2A1A2ii   CCCC

where:

CCCC = KWBS

T1 = L or M (GRIB2 Products), depending on forecast time

T2 A - total cloud A - dew point temperature

E - total precipitation F - precipitable water

H - height K - surface visibility

M - categorical precipitation types (snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain) O - vertical velocity

P - mean sea level pressure reduce to MSL P - surface pressure

Q - best 4 layers lifted index Q- parcel lifted index

R - relative Humidity S - surface water equivalent accumulated snow depth

T - temperature U - U component of wind

V - V component of wind W - CAPE

X - surface lifted index Y - CIN

Z - mean sea level pressure (ETA Model reduction) Z - storm relative helicity

T - potential temperature Z - 1 hybrid level simulated reflectivity

Z - 1000 m level simulated reflectivity Z - 4000 m level simulated reflectivity

Z - composite simulated reflectivity Z - horizontal moisture divergence


A1 = A - 5 km Eastern US
B - 5 km Western US
C - 5 km Alaska
D - 5 km Pacific Hawaii
E - 5 km Puerto Rico
F - 5 km Guam

The T1 and A2 combination specifies the forecast time (ranging from 00 to 48 hours)

T1 A2
L A= 00, B=06, C=12, D=18, E=24, F=30,G=36,H=42,I=48
M B=03, E=09, H=15, K=21, L=27,O=33, P=39, Q=45

ii = 99 - 1000 mb 98 - Surface LI, CAPE, CIN, HLCY, USTM, VSTM
92 - 925 mb 89 - any parameter reduced to see level
86 - All boundary level layer ( 0-30mb, 30-60mb, 60-90mb, 90-120mb, 120-150mb AGL) 85 - 850 mb
70 - 700 mb 50 - 500 mb
40 - 400 mb 30 - 300 mb
25 - 250 mb 20 - 200 mb
00 - Entire Atmosphere (P WAT and T CDC)
