Title: GloFAS: probabilistic precipitation forecast


This data set shows for the whole globe the probability [%] of accumulated precipitation exceeding 50, 150 and 300 mm over the entire forecast range of 10 days. This is based on the probabilistic precipitation forecast of the ECMWF (ECMWF-ENS).

The update frequency of this data set is daily; and the spatial coverage is global; while the horizontal resolution is 0.1 degree.

This information is produced by the operational suit of GloFAS ( in order to provide the user with an global overview on the probability of precipitation exceeding a medium (50 mm), large (150 mm) and extreme (300 mm) amount of precipitation over the forecast range of 10 days.
