2 m temperature and 30 m wind

Base Time: Mon 08 Aug 2022 12 UTC T+15 Valid time: Tue 09 Aug 2022 03 UTC (T+15)

Air temperatures at 2 m above the earth's surface approximate most closely to the conditions a person would most likely experience. 2 m air temperatures are a post-processed product that is derived by non-linear interpolation between model air temperatures at the lowest model level (at about 10 m above the surface) and temperatures forecast at the model earth's surface.

Further information on the diagnosis of temperature and surface wind is available in the Forecast User Guide.

Cogs to symbolise CAMS automatic alert system

Atmospheric composition observations are checked automatically

ECMWF has extended the quality monitoring of observations used by the global forecasting system of the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service by adding an automatic alert system. CAMS is implemented by ECMWF on behalf of the European Commission.

European heatwave mid-June 2022 - EFI

Highlighted tweet

June 2022 saw two serious #heatwaves in Europe, during which some all-time temperature records were broken. Find out how ECMWF predicted the heatwaves: European heatwaves in June 2022

Datasets

Forecasts, analyses, climate re-analyses, reforecasts and multi-model data are available from our archive (MARS) or via dedicated data servers or via point-to-point dissemination.

Accessing forecasts

Researchers, WMO members, commercial users and satellite data providers can gain access to ECMWF forecast products under one of our various license agreement types.

Serving meteorology

International collaboration is fundamental to the work of ECMWF, working with the EU and the meteorological community at large, including the World Meteorological Organization, space agencies, and scientists around the world.

Workshops and education

Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.

ECMWF lecture theatre

ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
