The new NAM (North American Mesoscale Model) charts are available at 4 kilometers (about 2.5 miles) resolution over most of North America, the Northern Caribbean, and adjacent waters and at 3 kilometers (about 1.9 miles) around Hawaii andPuerto Rico. This improved resolution allows the model to better resolve things like mountainous terrain and temperature differences near the coast that can both impact local wind forecasts. In addition, the "ZOOM IN" feature enables you to focus on the details of local wind forecasts out to 60 hours.
