Windwind speed at specified height
Temptemperature at specified height
RHrelative humidity at specified height
WPDInstantaneous Wind Power Density measure of power available in the wind: ½ρv3, where ρ is air density and v is wind velocity
TPWTotal Precipitable Water total amount of water in a column of air stretching from ground to space
TCWTotal Cloud Water total amount of water in clouds in a column of air from ground to space
3HPA3-hour Precipitation Accumulation amount of precipitation over the next three hours
CAPEConvective Available Potential Energy from Surface indicates the buoyancy of air, a measure of atmospheric instability and predictor of severe weather
MSLPMean Sea Level Pressure air pressure reduced to sea level
MIMisery Index perceived air temperature as combination of heat index and wind chill
SSTSea Surface Temperature temperature of the ocean surface
SSTASea Surface Temperature Anomaly difference in ocean temperature from daily average during years 1981-2011
HTSGWSignificant Wave Height roughly equal to mean wave height as estimated by a “trained observer”
COscCarbon Monoxide Surface Concentration the fraction of carbon monoxide present in air at the earth’s surface
