0430Z Radar/04-05Z Precip Real-time Run
Slide 45 of 52
This slide shows the 0431Z (1230 am) BGM radar image overlaid with the MM5 (real-time configuration run) forecast 1-hour accumulated precipitation between 04 and 05Z (midnight and 1 am). The rainfall contours are every 0.05 inches. This 17 hour forecast shows that the MM5 simulation, other than being slightly too far north, did a very good job simulating the time and place of the developing bow echo.
