Winds at 200 hPa at the 24 th hour generated using WRF Ver 4.2 at a resolution of 9 Km for West India refers to the predicted wind direction and speed at a pressure level of 200 hPa, which is located in the upper troposphere (approximately 12 kilometers or 7.5 miles above the Earth's surface). The winds are presented knots (kt), and the direction is given in degrees from true north. ‘Jet Streams’ are marked in shades of green for winds with magnitude of more than 60 kt is a narrow band of high-speed winds that can influence weather patterns over large areas. The depiction also shows the temperature along with the wind barb on the grid points at 200 hPa.
