HopWRF-ARW Model Output

  4 Concurrent Member Ensemble - Plumes


The ensemble mean fields shown on the plumes are simple numerical averages of the four concurrent members. Due to the high resolution of the solutions, means calculated in this manner are not appropriate for storm scale fields such as updraft helicity, updraft velocity, etc. This method can also give misleading information for simulated reflectivity fields when precipitation is convective in nature. Although not yet available, neighborhood probability output will be generated for such storm scale fields in order to provide a more meaningful representation of their distribution amongst the ensemble members.
