Which one is generally the most accurate??? Is that why they usually put 6-10 because those models predict different amounts or how does that work
Amateur forecasters such as myself tend to prefer the NAM and GFS as they are the most readily available, free of charge and they update every 6 hours. GFS for longer range stuff as its about the only free model you can get that goes out over 144 hrs. Its always interesting looking out the full 384 hrs and seeing a monster storm. Interesting enough for this storm the GFS was painting a storm in the area from 3-5th about 10 days ago and so for this thing at least it did a pretty decent job. If you want to start looking at this stuff here's the first place I head to
