Overview of GFS LAMP 

The Localized Aviation MOS Program (LAMP) system provides aviation forecast guidance. LAMP is designed to frequently update the central Model Output Statistics (MOS) product suite primarily by incorporating the most recent observational data. The guidance is available at over 2000 stations in the CONUS, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. The guidance is also available for select weather elements in gridded format covering the NDFD CONUS grid. The products are updated hourly and valid over a 25-hour period.

MDL is responsible for developing the LAMP system and supporting the operational implementation of the system on the NOAA/NWS/NCEP Weather and Climate Operational Supercomputer Systems (WCOSS). LAMP is run in the NWS operational jobstream on WCOSS, and the official products are the text bulletins, BUFR messages, and GRIB2 gridded data. MDL produces the graphical images for display on the MDL web pages see here. LAMP is supported 24x7 in NWS operations, while the graphical products are considered quasi-operational and therefore are not supported operationally.

LAMP/GLMP v2.1.2 Experimental Products

With the LAMP v2.1.2 implementation on January 25, 2018, LAMP began creating 15-minute updates for the LAMP and Gridded LAMP ceiling and visibility guidance. We plan to make the 15-minute updated guidance products available experimentally via this website, and if there is enough interest for them to be disseminated to the NWS FTP server or across the Satellite Broadcast Network, we will consider implementing that change at a later time.
