NOAA/NCEP GFS Model Forecast Imagery

This data set contains the several forecast image products from the NOAA/NCEP GFS model. The products include 300mb heights/wind, 500mb heights/vorticity/wind, 700 mb heights/humidity/wind, 850mb heights/temperature/wind, mean sea level pressure/1000-500 mb thickness/precipitation, and surface winds/temperature/MSLP. The products are available every 6 hours out to the 180 hour forecast and every 12 hours from 180-204 hours. The images were created by NOAA/NCEP. his data set contains imagery from the two PLOWS field phases, 6 February to 30 March 2009 and 14 October 2009 to 10 March 2010. No imagery are available for the period between the field phases.
