We present EMO-5*, a European high-resolution, (sub-)daily, multi-variable meteorological data set built on historical and real-time observations. EMO-5 is a Copernicus Emergency Management Service product and includes at daily resolution: total precipitation, temperatures (mean, minimum and maximum), wind speed, solar radiation and water vapour pressure. In addition, EMO-5 also makes available 6-hourly precipitation and mean temperature. The raw observations from the ground weather stations underwent a set of quality controls, before SPHEREMAP and Yamamoto interpolation methods were applied in order to estimate for each 5x5 km grid cell the variable value and its affiliated uncertainty, respectively. EMO-5 (release 1) covers the time period from 1990 to 2019.
* EMO stands for "European Meteorological Observations", whereas the 5 denotes the spatial resolution of 5 km.
