The WRF-ARW Europe and France models are identical, the only difference is the resolution.
The models are updated 4 times a day. For instance the 12:00 pm update means that we have the maps with the observations made at 12:00 pm and which serve us as a basis for the calculation of the model. The calculation and data provision time explains why the maps are available several hours after the update.
The WRF model is developed by american meteorologists and researchers. It can be used freely and has many available parameters in order to refine the settings or in order to test different calculation equations.
In order to improve the WRF versions displayed on Météo 60, you can inform me if you notice obvious or repeathed mistakes on a parameter or a specific area. I draw your attention to the importance of following the model on a long-term in order to notice it.
GFS model (Global Forecast System) results from an official weather organism from USA: the NOAA. Indeed the NOAA freely provides its data which cover the whole world.
