NCEP Climate Forecast System Version 2 (CFSv2) 6-hourly Products

The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System (CFS) is initialized four times per day (0000, 0600, 1200, and 1800 UTC). NCEP upgraded their operational CFS to version 2 on March 30, 2011. This is the same model that was used to create the NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR), and the purpose of this dataset is to extend CFSR. The 6-hourly atmospheric, oceanic and land surface analyzed products and forecasts, available at 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, and 2.5 degree horizontal resolutions, are archived here beginning with January 1, 2011 as an extension of CFSR. The RDA is not archiving any of the CFS seasonal forecasts. For more information about CFS, please see http://cfs.ncep.noaa.gov/ [http://cfs.ncep.noaa.gov/].
