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.
An official ECMWF target is to reduce the frequency of errors >5°C in ensemble 2m temperature forecasts for 5 days ahead. Related verification charts like this are monitored daily. Squares/triangles show errors >5°C. Warm biases over Scandinavia are under investigation.
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.
