Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS)

The Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS) program supports the National Weather Service (NWS) in the design, development, and implementation of a global prediction system to address growing service demands and increase the accuracy of weather forecasts out to 30 days. The goal is to expand and accelerate critical weather forecasting research to operation (R2O) through accelerated development and implementation of current global weather prediction models, improved data assimilation techniques, and improved software architecture and system engineering.
