HRRR Model Now Available on NOAAPort

Unisys NOAAPort and NOAAPort Gateway users who receive the NWS satellite broadcast now have access to the High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) model, being broadcast over the NWS NOAAPort network.


Developed over the last five years by researchers at NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, the HRRR is a NOAA research to operations success story. It provides forecasters more detailed, short-term information about a quickly developing small-scale storm by combining higher detail, more frequent radar input and an advanced representation of clouds and winds. The HRRR model forecasts are run in high-resolution every hour using the most recent observations with forecasts extending out 15 hours, allowing forecasters to better monitor rapidly developing and evolving localized storms.


For more information, go to NOAA’s Press Release or NWS’ Technical Bulletin. For Unisys customers with annual maintenance support, you can contact Unisys Operations for help with modifying your ingest.bul file to receive the new model.
