ECMWF launches new Strategy
12 September 2016
ECMWF has launched its new ten-year Strategy, which sets ambitious goals that push the limits of predictability in weather forecasting.
A key target is to extend the probabilistic skill of ECMWF's high-impact weather forecasts by three to six days over the next decade.
This would enable skilful predictions of high-impact weather up to two weeks ahead.
Other goals include predicting large-scale patterns and regime transitions up to four weeks ahead, and global-scale anomalies up to a year ahead.
