Abstract:

The mathematical formulation of the model used by the AFGWC in cloud forecasting is described. The model consists of three modules macroscale clouds MSC, five-layer 5LYR and high-resolution cloud prog HRCP. Forecasts are based on three-dimensional parcel displacements computed from forecast winds given by dynamic numerical weather prediction models. Author
