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 April 2015 NOAA Satellite Conference will take environmental satellite data collaboration to the next level. Participants will cover topics such as improved user access, reception and readiness for data, technology and applications from current and future polar-orbiting and geostationary satellites.
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.
