NAM and GFS model runs


The NAM and GFS models matched up somewhat well in the local region from today until late Saturday into early Sunday. The NAM is predicting a line of storms to enter the region midday today, while the GFS predicts a line of storms to enter our area more in the afternoon, and slightly stronger than the NAM predicts.
They also both predicted that showers and storms are in the area on Saturday, but the GFS predicts that system moving slower than the NAM, and thus exiting later Saturday than shown by the NAM.
