Development Status header

All NWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) locally generate gridded forecasts for their area of responsibility. Those gridded forecasts are transmitted to the national NDFD server, where they are joined into national and regional-scale mosaics. The Tropical Prediction Center, Storm Prediction Center and Climate Prediction Center also produce some gridded forecasts. See the NDFD Element Status Table for a list of NDFD weather elements available for the coterminous U.S. (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and Puerto Rico/the Virgin Islands. All NDFD data are available to download or view. See the NDFD Access Data web page for more information.

The NDFD contains two-dimensional gridded forecasts at a 5 km horizontal resolution for the CONUS; click here for the resolution for other parts of the U.S.
