forecastmaps.eu is developed and maintained by meteorologist Efstathios Konstantinos Mironakis. The forecastmaps.eu website uses NCEP's models RAP, NAM, GFS and GEFS, also the models NOGAPS and COAMPS. For high resolution local weather forecasts forecastmaps.eu uses the mesoscales models WRF, ARPS and MM5. The Sea-Ice Model ROMS, is used for specialized services over the sea.
