Station-based LAMP

LAMP is a statistical system which provides forecast guidance for sensible weather elements. LAMP updates MOS on an hourly basis, is run on NOAA/NWS/NCEP Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputer Systems (WCOSS) computers and disseminated centrally from NCEP, and provides guidance for over 1600 stations as well as gridded observation and forecast guidance on the NDFD CONUS 2.5-km grid out to 25 hours.  


LAMP provides station guidance for the following weather elements:  

  • 2-meter temperature
  • 2-meter dewpoint
  • 10-m Wind speed, direction, and gusts
  • Probability of precipitation (on hr)
  • Probability of measurable precipitation (6- and 12-h)
  • Precipitation type
  • Precipitation characteristics
  • Lightning
  • Convection
  • Ceiling height
  • Conditional ceiling height
  • Opaque sky cover
  • Visibility
