Forecasting the weather, in particular severe and extreme weather has always been the most important subject in meteorology. This session will focus on recent research and developments on forecasting techniques, in particular those designed for operations and impact oriented. Contributions related to nowcasting, meso-scale and convection permitting modelling, ensemble prediction techniques, and statistical post-processing are very welcome.
Topics may include:
Nowcasting methods and systems, use of observations and weather analysis
Mesoscale and convection permitting modelling
Ensemble prediction techniques
Ensemble-based products for severe/extreme weather forecasting
Seamless deterministic and probabilistic forecast prediction
Post-processing techniques, statistical methods in prediction
Use of machine learning, data mining and other advanced analytical techniques
Impact oriented weather forecasting
Presentation of results from relevant international research projects of EU, WMO, and EUMETNET etc.
