2m Temperature: Weekly mean anomalies & warming stripes for the 3 ECMWF locations (Reading, Bonn, Bologna)

Base Time: Thu 17 Jun 2021 00 UTC T+264 Valid time: Mon 21 Jun 2021 00 UTC - Mon 28 Jun 2021 00 UTC

The anomalies have been calculated relative to a 20-year model climatology. The areas where the ensemble forecast is not significantly different from the climatology are blanked.

A “warming stripes” are a visual representations of the change in temperature. #ShowYourStripes

Weather observation super-site in Falkenberg, Germany

How super-site observations help improve ECMWF forecasts

ECMWF researchers have used detailed soil and weather observations up to about 200 metres above ground from several observational super-sites in Europe to assess and improve different aspects of our weather forecasts.

In focus

Articles presenting ECMWF’s involvement in diverse areas and fact sheets on topics including ocean wave forecasting, Earth system modelling and data assimilation, reanalysis, and ECMWF's use of satellite observations.

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.


Highlighted tweet

Do you use ECMWF products and services? Come and share your experiences at our annual user meeting #UEF2021, taking place virtually 1-4 June.


Forecasts, analyses, climate re-analyses, reforecasts and multi-model data are available from our archive (MARS) or via dedicated data servers or via point-to-point dissemination.

Accessing forecasts

Researchers, WMO members, commercial users and satellite data providers can gain access to ECMWF forecast products under one of our various license agreement types.

Workshops and education

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.

ECMWF lecture theatre

ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
