    San Diego group posted this video about the different weather models. Worth a watch.

    As info, the Windgrams and RASP data use NAM data for initialization and a specialized version of the WRF model (WRF plus secret sauce from Dr Jack) to reduce the grid.  The “North” and “South” RASP models are 1.5km grids.

    Major Upgrade to the RASP model viewer.

    As some of you may know, GoogleMaps shifted to a paid service about a year ago.  More recently they required a version upgrade.  If you’ve been trying to use the RASP maps it’s been pretty ugly with a “development purposes only” banner.

    These hot days have been good for one thing, I’ve implemented Darren’s OpenStreetMap replacement viewer.  The model underneath hasn’t changed, but it’s free of any reliance on GoogleMaps.

    Enjoy,

    Nice work Alan.  🙂

    Can the launch locations (map pins) be visible by default? At the moment, we can see them by enabling the “Sounding/SkewT” option through the layer icon in the upper right.

    Awesome Alan.

    Is it possible for the map’s zoom level not to reset (zoom out to a default) when we switch days?
