In June 2021, the CEMS MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from Lazio’s Agenzia Regionale Di Protezione Civile into the operational processing routines. The agency delivers precipitation, temperature, relative air humidity, solar radiation, as well as wind speed and direction data on a high temporal resolution. Depending on the parameter, data from 8 (solar radiation) up to 196 (precipitation) stations are loaded into the CEMS MDCC database. The data are processed and included into the gridded precipitation, temperature, solar radiation and wind speed fields produced every day in the early morning as input for EFAS forecasts as well as for EFFIS.
CEMS MDCC would like to thank Lazio’s Agenzia Regionale Di Protezione Civile very much for providing their data and for helping to resolve questions from their data users.
