Advancing global NWP through international collaboration

2m temperature and 10m winds

Base Time: Wed 05 May 2021 12 UTC T+24 Valid time: Thu 06 May 2021 12 UTC

This page shows the high-resolution forecasts (HRES) of:

  • Wind at the lowest model level (about 10 metres above the surface) shown as black arrows. Arrow length is proportional to wind speed.
  • Two metre temperature (colour shading, 4°C intervals). The 2m temperature is a post-processed product, derived by non-linear interpolation between temperatures at the lowest model level (~10 m) and at the surface (i.e. the 'skin temperature').

Assimilating soil moisture scatterometer data using neural networks

Patricia De Rosnay and colleagues discuss a recent study which uses neural network techniques to derive soil moisture from satellite observations. Neural networks are shown to outperform operational methods in some regions.

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.

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.
