Abstract:

The Canadian spectral forecast model developed by Daley, et al., 1976 has been modified for use in medium range forecasts. These modifications involve primarily the vertical differencing scheme which is changed to conserve energy, the dry convective adjustment, and some of the program structure which allows the model to run efficiently. Results of a medium range integration are compared using both the modified and original model and actual weather observation.
