Abstract

This presentation investigates the linkage between forecast errors and specific weather systems and contributes to addressing the following questions:

(i) How well can NWP models represent and predict certain weather systems (e.g., the track and intensity of a cyclone or the lifecycle of a Rossby wave?), and

(ii) Are there specific weather systems involved in situations where forecasts errors are large?
