NOAA Operational Model Archive and Distribution System

Description of NOAA's NOMADS servers hosting NCEP model data

Users of NOMADS are reminded that they should use the URL http://nomads.ncep.noaa.gov to access the system and they will always be placed on the current active server. As of Tuesday October 7, 2009, users that have been using direct IP addresses to access NOMADS systems may no longer be able to access the system.


Help Desk: Questions or problems please use the link to submit a service ticket.
