Meso Analysis Maps

Post by Bob Hartig » Sat Mar 16, 2013 9:42 am

Andy, kudos on some truly fabulous upgrades to F5 Data. In particular, the addition of NAVGEM broadens out the model suite nicely; I love that can now draw my own analysis on the maps; and I can finally do wind barb crossovers! Great work--thank you!

I have one question, and I'll begin it with an observation. Right now the F5 mesoanalysis maps show a forecast hour of 12Z. At the same time, the SPC graphics are stamped 15Z. So obviously there's a significant time lag, and it's one I've noticed frequently with the F5 meso maps. It becomes bothersome when I do GR3 overlays via Allisonhouse in order to obtain the most current meso data for the environment that storms are moving through and into. Info that is several hours old defeats my reason for using the radar overlays.

Is this something you're working on? Any solutions in sight?

Bob,

I've moved the Mesoanalysis service to a faster server, and modified the compression of the data for more reliable updates and faster update times. Things should update on about the hour, give or take 10 min. I hope that helps.

Thanks, Andy. Let's see what happens. I want to do an up-to-date review of F5 Data in my Stormhorn blog, and with the AH mesoanalysis overlay being such a potentially useful feature, I want to make sure it's performing reliably before I write about it.
