EFAS animation of deterministic precipitation forecast

Collection: CEMS-EFAS : European Flood Awareness System 

Description

This data set contains two animations showing the spatial evolution of precipitation over the whole of Europe: One 3-hourly over 7 days based on the deterministic precipitation forecast of the DWD and the other one 6-hourly over 10 days based on the ECMWF forecast. 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 xx 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 tempo-spatial evolution of precipitation over the forecast range of 7 i.e. 10 days.
