We are now displaying more frequent weather forecast initialization times on our dashboard to give users access to the latest weather data within your basins. We display:
Additionally, we are updating weather observations from HRRR every hour.
So, when do our flow forecasts update? HydroForecast Short-term has two primary initialization times: 0Z and 12Z. During these two primary updates, we pull in the latest weather forecasts from ECMWF, GEFS, and GFS. In between those two main updates, we produce new forecasts every two hours incorporating the latest stream gauge observations. Check out our support documentation to learn more about when our forecasts become available through our API and in the dashboard.
We have R&D planned to incorporate the remaining weather forecast sources and initialization times into our model to bring you the most up-to-date flow data as possible.
HydroForecast Short-term is now using a new data assimilation methodology from the literature that best corrects for near-term errors in weather and incorporates flow observations.
From the latest research into model improvements to new dashboard features that make your workflows easier, there has been a lot happening with HydroForecast. Join us on Tuesday August 15th for a deep dive into how HydroForecast Short-term works and learn about the latest R&D across the HydroForecast product suite.
