The application of grid-based photochemical modeling systems to provide real-time air quality forecasts has been a fairly recent development and has been mostly restricted to the prediction of O3. Since June 2003, the National Weather Service (NWS)/National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) have been performing grid-based numerical O3 forecasts in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For 2004, experimental PM2.5 forecasts were added for selected domains. On the other hand, many operational air quality predictions for O3 and PM2.5 by federal, state and local agencies are still based on a combination of weather predictions, statistical analyses, and expert judgement.
