    Hi,

    Just having paid for the Lite Subscrption service on here i am trying to under stand what all the GFS Key Weather Charts are. I see that i have the following showing up on the chart panel (00 , 03 , 06 and so on upto 384). Sorry to ask but what does these numbers mean. Is it the amount of hours from the current time

    Yep, the GFS model is run 4 times a day. Upto about 84hrs is the highest resolution, then to about 180hrs at a lower res, then after that it is at it's lowest res.
