Real-time ARPS Model Output via FTP

  FTP Site:  

What You'll Find at the FTP Site

ARPS output in a variety of formats is provided in real-time as the run progresses.

The region, run type (forecast or analysis) and run time can be identified from the directory and file name. For instance, fcst-spmeso is a forecast on the Southern Plains MESOscale grid. An example of a complete path is fcst-spmeso/ar2003052012.hdf021600, the 6 hour forecast in HDF4 format of a run initialized at 12Z on 20 May 2003 on the SPMESO grid.
