New GFS-Based MOS Sites Coming August 2006

The following 88 sites are being added to the GFS-based MOS system on August 15, 2006. For the buoys and C-MAN sites (19 in total, identified by asterisks below), guidance for temperatures and winds will be available in the MOS marine message (MMG). For the other sites which are on land and provide hourly observations in the standard METAR format, the MOS alphanumeric guidance (MAV and MEX) will be expanded to include the new forecast points. All of these new sites will be included in the GFS MOS BUFR messages.
