MMM In the News

Severe thunderstorm east of Denver, 5/21/14
Founded on an NCAR-based research model, the new High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model will transform how the National Weather Service predicts short-range weather threats.

Weather Research & Forecasting

The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both atmospheric research and operational forecasting needs. For the current WRF forecast for today's weather, please click here.
