Limited Area Ensemble Prediction System (COSMO-LEPS)

Due to the move of our Meteorological Archival and Retrieval System (MARS) to the new Data Centre in Bologna there will be no or degraded access to this dataset at times between June and October 2022.
Please visit our dedicated data centre migration pages for more information.
Thank you for your patience and support during this important move, which will allow exciting scientific developments and overall better service.

It is the Limited-area Ensemble Prediction System (LEPS), based on COSMO-model and implemented within COSMO (COnsortium for Small-scale Modelling, including Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Switzerland) implemented and maintained by Arpae-SIMC.

COSMO-LEPS was developed to combine the advantages of global-model ensembles with the high-resolution details gained by the LAMs, so as to identify the possible occurrence of high-impact and localised weather events (heavy rainfall, strong winds, temperature anomalies, snowfall, …).

Generation of COSMO-LEPS to improve the forecast of high-impact weather in the short and early-medium range (up to d+5).
