Hey Ben, Craig,

Do you guys know whats happening with the FV3? I think I read it was supposed to be launched today?

Any thoughts on the new models accuracy?

Ah thanks for bringing this up, I wasn't aware.

It was launched overnight and it's affected our model updates (stuck on 06z) as we need to change the fetch command.

Regarding increased accuracy, a quick search looks like it's been optimised for the US, will look closer.

Thanks Craig. Interested to hear your thoughts on the new model.
I looked at some comparisons a little while back and sounded like the euro was still the go to but improved grid resolution is a welcome change. Do you know if the grid revolution is carried through to WW3?

Also, Ben hinted at some SN updates aligning with the updated model. Any news on these?

Cheers

How’s the patch going? Looks like you’re still stuck on 06z?
