DATASET

EFAS deterministic precipitation forecast

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set shows for the whole of Europe the accumulated amount of precipitation [mm] over the entire forecast range (7 i.e. 10 days). This is based on the deterministic precipitation forecasts of the ECMWF and DWD. The update frequency of this data set is twice a day (00:00 and 12:00 UTC); and the spatial coverage is the extended geographic Europe; while the horizontal resolution is 5 km.

This information is produced by the operational suit of EFAS (www.efas.eu) in order to provide the EFAS partners with an European overview on the expected quantity of precipitation over the forecast range of 7 i.e. 10 days.
