Weather Models
« on: May 11, 2014, 03:07:25 PM »
I have just started subscribing to weather bell, I enjoy looking at weather models, but a lot of it is French to me.

What does 900 mb wind speeds mean for surface conditions?  What impact/relevance does it have to a forecaster in making a forecast.

These model pics look like a significant East Coast event.  Is it really as significant as it appears to me.

What does MSLP mean?

Here is a weather glossary from the NWS. Really helps when trying to figure out what they are talking about in the discussions.
As for MSLP that's mean sea level pressure.
Not sure about the other one.
