Today at 17z, NCEP swapped in a RUC20 background field from an experimental FSL run using soil moisture/temperature nudging as part of its analysis. This will help the RUC avoid a dry bias in 2m dewpoint in much of the western US, but also in Florida and southeast US.
The soil moisture/temp nudging is also included in the upcoming RUC13, for which a forum announcement will be sent out in the next 1-2 days.
