Model Forecast of Wind and Temperature

This weather map shows the latest wind and temperature forecast from the National Weather Service (NWS) NAM computer model. The model is run every 6 hours starting at 1 am EST, which is 2 am EDT. The maps are generated 3 hours after the start of each model run to make sure that all data have been received.

Wind is plotted as an arrow. The orientation of the arrow indicates the direction that the wind is blowing. The length of the arrow indicates the wind speed. Areas with stronger wind speeds are indicated by lines of constant speed, isotachs, every 5 knots starting with 15 knots.

Temperature contours are drawn every 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
