Abstract : This Technical Note describes the Air Weather Service Primitive-Equation (AWSPE) models in use at the Air Force Global Weather Central (AFGWC). There are 6-layer and 7-layer AWSPE versions. We present a brief history of the models at AFGWC as well as their forerunners at the National Meteorological Center. We then present the technical details of both models. Parts I and II describe the 6-layer and 7-layer versions, respectively.
