A selection of weather model parameters, including aviation parameters. It concerns near surface and boundary layer parameters (up to 1500m) of the UWC-West HARMONIE-AROME Cy43 model, for the Dutch domain. For this weather forecast model, KNMI works closely with Iceland, Denmark and Ireland on local short-term weather forecasts under the name "United Weather Centres-West" (UWC-West). An international project team is working on a joint Numerical Weather Prediction model (NWP), procurement and management of the HPC (supercomputer) and infrastructure. Every hour 18 new files will be available, each with one parameter. The parameters are: wind gusts at 10m, wind speed at 10m and multiple levels up to 1500m, wind as a vector at 10m (both speed and direction) and multiple levels up to 1500m, air temperature at 2m, air pressure at MSL (mean sea level), relative humidity, precipitation parameters, cloud base altitude, visibility, mixed layer depth, absolute updraft helicity, thermal velocity, W/U (vertical velocity scale of thermals normalized with a horizontal turbulent velocity scale). The forecast time resolution is 1 hour, with a forecast horizon of 60 hours.
