Interesting so I guess our H cane season will benefit from this as will our meoscale forecasts - LR will still suck!

While we countinue to increase computing capacity, we still have to split capacity between the irrationally  large number of various models we run; both experimental and operational. While this progress continues to move us in the correct direction, until we condense our forecast model base into a few Or single area specific models; development time, operational computing capacity, and funding will countinue to be split and thus our most important forecast models won't improve at the needed rate.
