95th percentile of 10 meter wind speed for every hour in May, June, and July 2015-2017. Strong winds often occur during evening hours, over mountain ridges, oceans, and Great Lakes, and the mountain and central states. This video has been truncated to better fit this format.

Weather Statistics with Open Science Grid

By Brian Blaylock and John Horel, Atmospheric Sciences

CHPC's Pando archive hosts 40+ TB of weather model analyses and forecasts from the High Resolution Rapid Refresh model beginning April 2015. Resources from the Open Science Grid were used to quickly retrieve data from the Pando archive and calculate percentile statistics for several weather variables. Percentiles from three years of data were calculated for every hour of the year using a 30 day window centered on each hour. These statistics are being used to perform data quality checks of in situ weather observations and provide meteorologists insight on model performance at specific locations.
