After testing since late 2003, the 13km RUC is nearing operational implementation over the next few months. The best current estimate for operational implementation at NCEP is May-June 2005. The 13km RUC includes assimilation of new observations (GPS precipitable water, METAR cloud/visibility, mesonet...), improved model physics and post-processing, and, of course, finer horizontal resolution.
Users will have access to 20km and 40km look-alike grids from RUC13, including the implicit advantage of finer resolution in the RUC13 model and analysis processing.
The RUC web page has been changed to include links to 2 files with RUC13 information. also listed here:
More messages will be coming soon from RUC developers/testers at FSL and NCEP.
