I'm skeptical until I see it actually perform in regards to precipitation.
Twice in the past year and a half we were forcasted with 100% rain chance but there was no rain within 50 miles.
I understand these mets have an impossible job but I'll be watching this closely.

Seems similar to the HRDPS model from Environment Canada. Excited to see how they both do for their respective areas.

For those that use the Android app Weatherbomb the developer wants to add this data to the app.
Should be pretty cool.

I wish that model covered all of North America instead of just Canada. Although, there is an overlap on the boarder where we could see how the models perform against each other.

I'm hoping to keep an eye on them in the coming months as I'll have a bit more free time. I didn't notice any thing similar to this but the one thing that would make that easier is if the HRRR had the ability to load straight into Google maps/earth via their API like the HRDPS does. That way you could compare all of the similar model outputs between the two visually besides comparing any model statistics for those overlapping edge areas.

With that said I'll have to dig around a little more and see if NOAA is going to be offering that ability any time soon or not.
