A collaborative effort between NOAA, NCAR, and a number of research universities has produced the first public release of the medium range forecast system, which includes the current operational Global Forecast System (GFS). The system is now capable of running on many different platforms, from NCAR's Cheyenne supercomputer to a laptop. This presentation will go over what is available in the public release, and how one can get started using the model.
