Figure 1: The model results for three models (NAM, GFS, and ECMWF) together with the CPC verification analysis, all for 24 h period ending at 12 Z on October 24, 2010. Red and blue ellipses show high and low precipitation areas, respectively. Color bars on the left side of the figures show the color codes for the amount of precipitation from 0 to 175 mm/day. Different shades of green correspond to the amount of precipitation from 1 to 10 mm/day and different shades of red from 25 to 75 mm/day. The figure illustrates the differences in model forecasts, especially for high and low precipitations.
