High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model

A new high resolution weather model developed by NOAA's Earth Systems Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado was made operational by the National Weather Service. The High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model generates extremely detailed 3-kilometer resolution data for a multitude of 2-D and 3-D variables, each with 15 minute intervals.
The Deep Space Climate Observatory, or DSCOVR, will maintain the nation's real-time solar wind monitoring capabilities which are critical to the accuracy and lead time of NOAA's space weather alerts and forecasts. Click play to watch.
