RUC change package - sched 11 Jul 06

RUC users,

A significant set of changes on the RUC analysis, forecast model, and post-processing are scheduled for next Tuesday 11 July at 12z. This is the most important set of changes to the RUC since the 13-km RUC implementation in June 2005.

The key differences are:
Improved precipitation over oceans and coastal areas.
Improved RH forecasts
Improved upper-level winds related to improved precipitation
Improved surface fields in coastal areas

More detailed information is available at:
http://ruc.noaa.gov/ruc13_docs/RUC-testing-Jun06.htm.
Take a look at this -- it should be interesting for RUC users.

NCEP has real-time parallel vs. oper RUC graphics available at http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/mmb/ruc2/para.

NOAA/GSD has been testing these changes since last October, and NCEP has been testing them in various forms since November 2005.

We will send out another notification to confirm the actual implementation.
