Dear MSC Datamart users,
In order to provide continually improved weather and environmental
prediction services, Environment and Climate Change Canada, in
collaboration with Shared Services Canada, will be switching to a new
high-performance computing infrastructure as of *Tuesday, August 15**^th
**2017*, beginning with the 12 UTC model runs.
In terms of computing capacity, we will reach the important petaflop
scale (1 million gigaflops), which will put us on par with other
international weather centres.
Although we do not expect any major issues, if you notice any issue with
the products as of August 15^th , please do not hesitate to contact us
at the address firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your usual
More details available in this GENOT:

O.k. then if that's the case then the GEM will be more accurate when it buries us again this winter with 3 feet of snow.stuffradio wrote:Missionbcwx wrote:So in other words more computer generated inaccurate garbage.
No, more accurate data. Remember the GEM did fairly well in the snow department even though it was overdoing the snow a lot.

And delayed again...
AFTER MONTHS OF PREPARATION, ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE CHANGE CANADA,
IN COLLABORATION WITH SHARED SERVICES CANADA, WILL BE SWITCHING TO
A NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE COMPUTING INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE FIRST PART
OF SEPTEMBER (EXACT DATE TO BE DETERMINED).
