FOUS Guidance

FOUS data is point specific numerical model data. Unlike GFS or NAM Model Output Statistics (MOS), FOUS data is only available at certain locations throughout Canada and the United States. However, FOUS data provides a wealth of information such as a station's: relative humidity, temperature, vertical velocity, lifted index, and height at various pressure levels in 6 hour increments from 0-60 hours.

For information on how to decode and use FOUS data, check out University at Albany's guide.
