Forecast charts and data
We provide current forecasts, climate reanalyses and specific datasets. These are available via the web, point-to-point dissemination, data servers and broadcasting.
Extreme snowfall affected some of southern Britain late last week. In these challenging situations ECMWF products show forecasters the likely delineations of different weather types. This case highlights the impact of warm seas in modulating precipitation type (follow the arrow).
Advancing weather science
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.
