Gridded Surface Temperature Ensemble Forecasts

Share:

Description

This data set gives 48-hour forecasts of 2-m surface temperature on a grid of locations in the US Pacific Northwest initialized on January 29, 2004 00UTC and valid on January 31, 2004 00UTC. The ensemble forecasts come from an eight member version of the University of Washington Mesoscale Ensemble (Grimit and Mass 2002; Eckel and Mass 2005). Temperatures are measured in kelvins.
Note that forecasts are not available for some of the interim dates.

Format

A data frame with 10098 rows and 10 columns:
CMCG,ETA,GASP,GFS,JMA,NGAPS,TCWB,UKMO forecasts from the 8 members of the ensemble (numeric).
latitude the latitude of each forecast (numeric).
longitude the longitude of each forecast (numeric).
