Nearest Grid Point To Airport

Mike Crimmins somehow chased this issue down and sent the graphic shown below. Appears the closest grid point to airport is off to its south-southwest - west of I-10 and a bit northwest of Sahuarita - fairly close and only a bit higher in elevation than airport. Mike - thanks so much for sending this!


  1. Would M. Crimmins be willing to show us how to find the nearest GFS 0.5 degree gridpoints for other locations? My searches were not very productive.

    1. Hi David,

      I found a raw GFS grid output with the lat/lons listed out in text form. I think this is what the GEFS EMC plumes are using, but not totally sure. I really wish I could have found a nice map, but no luck. I would be happy to send you that list of lat/lons. Shoot me an email at
