GFS Soil Moisture Anomaly

Associated Agencies

NOAA/National Weather Service/Climate Prediction Center (CPC)

The Climate Prediction Center has developed a soil moisture tool for the next 2 weeks based on the National Weather Service Global Forecast System (GFS) model. Note that these are only forecast tools. They may be used in making the official outlooks that go out to the public, but are not official forecasts in their own right.  The GFS bias corrected ensemble forecasts (daily precipitation and temperature at 00Z & 12Z) for Week 1 and Week 2 are used to drive the soil moisture model.
