NWP-Global: Operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) output from the UK Met Office Global Atmospheric Unified Model (UM)
A global configuration of the Met Office Unified Model provides the most accurate short range deterministic forecast by any national meteorological service covering a six day period. With a resolution of approximately 0.234 x 0.153 degrees, it is able to produce selected hourly data covering the first 48 hours at surface level and at standard pressure levels twice a day. The model’s initial state is kept close to the real atmosphere using hybrid 4D-Var data assimilation.
This dataset collection contains model data from the Met Office Unified Model (UM) operational Global Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) model. The archive currently holds data from April 2016 onwards but data will be back populated for earlier years.
