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.
The extreme snowfall seen in parts of Europe last weekend had high predictability, as highlighted by consistently high Extreme Forecast Index (EFI) and Shift of Tails (SOT) values for Saturday 5 January 2019 from as early as 31 December 2018.
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.
