In every day work operational meteorologists face up interesting, challenging and even dangerous weather phenomena when nowcasting and monitoring short to medium range forecasts. Several meteorologists are also interested in climate and are following extended to seasonal range forecasts. Combining this knowledge, meteorologist are trying to find new ways to improve the predictability and developing new services for both nowcasting and longer range forecasts.
In this session we are focused in case studies on local hazards and how the warning process in these cases has worked, or could be improved. We are also interested in climate information's role in operational forecasting such as the use of climate information in impact warnings and extended-range forecasts. The session focuses firmly on the operational experience and is in association with the Working Group for Cooperation between European Forecasters (WGCEF).
Papers on the following topics are welcome:
· Case studies on local hazards and how the warning process has worked, or could be improved
· Climate information's role in operational forecasting
· Extended-range forecasts: applicability on operational forecasting
· Towards seamless forecasting
