Abstract : The mathematical formulation of the model used by the AFGWC in cloud forecasting is described. The model consists of three modules: macroscale clouds (MSC), five-layer (5LYR) and high-resolution cloud prog (HRCP). Forecasts are based on three-dimensional parcel displacements computed from forecast winds given by dynamic numerical weather prediction models. (Author)
