AnimWx - Weather Model Viewer
What is AnimWx? The program name is short for Animated Weather (AnimWx). The program downloads weather model graphics from the National Weather Service (NWS) and animates them. With this viewer you can step through each frame one by one, or animate in the forward direction, reverse direction, or in a rocking fashion. You also can print the graphics to a printer.
What models does AnimWx show? The best! ETA, NGM (Nested Grid Model), and GFS (Global Forecast System) are the currently included models.
What parameters are shown? Many! You can select from the standard 200MB, 250MB, 300MB, 500MB, 700MB, 850MB, 10M, surface, 6hr precipitation, 24hr precipitation, and more!
