Paper Abstract

VAS [VISSR Atmospheric Sounder (Visible Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer)] data from the GOES-west are input to analyses used as inifial conditions for 48-hour numerical integra-tions of the Limited Fine-mesh Model (LFM) used operationally at the National Meteorological Center (NMC). Of four cases examined using VAS data, three produced improved forecasts of 500-mb height, while one produced a degraded forecast. The results are considered promising in regard to future use of such data in models such as the LFM.
