Limited Area Ensemble Prediction System (COSMO-LEPS)

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).
