This is what I say when users ask me which model is the most accurate for their location - I say all of them. It’s better to watch all models instead of choosing just one.

“Which is most accurate” is like asking “How long is a piece of string?” It depends on what you’re interested in precipitation, wind, temperature…

I want to include ensembles in Flowx one day.

BTW, the difference between the ECMWF and GFS models that caused SAndy to turn inland was a single parameter. If they took this parameter from ECMWF and put it into GFS, it predicted Sandy turning in. It wasn’t the model resolution, initial conditions, model equations - just one parameter value.

Now, here is the crux, is this parameter in the GFS model because it did better at predicting other important things, like tornadoes??

So when people argue about this model being better another model, it’s a limiting view since looking at them together is better than choosing just one.

Hello all,

Fret not. The bug it fixed. I’m hoping to release something today.

Cheers, Duane.
