Meteox.com - What Numerical Weather model do they use?

Postby Niall Dollard » 2012 Feb 01, 19:19

Ive been recently taken in by the nice animated forecast graphics displayed by Meteox. You can select up to 144 hrs out.

They say it is updated 4 times a day - but I doubt very much if it is GFS output. Yesterday (31st) it produced a run quite similar to today's ECMWF 12Z forecast. This shows HP rebuilding from the west and uniting with the northern European HP. Could it really be 1 day ahead of the ECMWF!!

I have sent an email to Meteox but am awaiting a reply.

btw : Congrats to all concerned in getting the COL forum up and running.

... If it is four times per day, it can't be EC, as that model is run only twice per day. The GFS runs much further than 144hrs so it would seem odd to truncate at that time step. The UK Met O global model runs to 144 (though the last 24 hours is usually regarded as back-up.
