These high-resolution, 4km models are the same ones you see used during the weather segments on NEWS7. While some models are updated a few time a day, our RPM (Rapid Precision Mesoscale) model is updated with new data every 3 hours. While the data often shows just how the weather will unfold, it isn't the only
source used for determining the upcoming weather.
In order to accurately predict the weather, we use over a dozen computer models to compare timing and forecast amounts.
If it were as easy as looking at one model, anybody could be a meteorologist. Just use this forecast model as a guide to what features may be headed this way over the next few days.
