GFS Model

The GFS model of NOAA, previously known as AVN/MRF, covers the globe at T254 (roughly equivalent to 0.5x0.5 degrees) with 64 vertical levels. The model is run every 6 hours, forecasting 16 days in to the future.

For a brief description of GFS model read this document.


The model output is provided in the NOAA website in the GRIB format. This page shows some near-real-time sample plots of GFS data for Indian Ocean.
