WXbinge (Weather Binge) is a meteorological website dedicated to forecast analysis from observations and numerical weather models. WXbinge was developed to provide meteorologist, as well as, the general public with up-to-date forecast and analysis. We aslo provide consulting for businesses and clients in need of information for various reasons, such as insurance claims. Images are created from METAR station data and model output from the Global Forecasting System (GFS), North American Mesoscale Model (NAM), the Rapid Refresh Model (RAP) and the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF). The data is freely available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Center for Environmental Prediction (NCEP).

All numerical model images are created by WXbinge unless stated otherwise. The webpage will update at 00, 06, 12 and 18 UTC for the GFS, NAM, and RAP models. The satellite data is obtained from NOAA Satellite and Information Service in cooperation with Unidata. This data will be updated every 15 minutes and is near real-time (NRT), with about a 30 minute lag. The NEXRAD composite radar is updated every 10 minutes. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) data is near real-time (6 hour lag) and is obtained from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. The National Digital Forecast Database will update twice daily at 0000 and 1200 GMT (7am/pm EST). The Convective outlooks from the Storm Prediction Center will be updated 4 times daily at 01, 07, 13, and 18 GMT.

During the launch phase of WXbinge, there will be bugs and minor browser issues while we continue to work the website. Please be patient while we hash out the technical issues.
