1709 Météo-France active stations have been integrated in the data collection
In September 2022, the CEMS MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from Météo-France into the operational processing routines. Météo-France provides precipitation, temperature, dewpoint temperature, relative air humidity, sunshine duration, solar radiation as well as wind speed and direction data on an hourly or daily basis. Data of 1709 active meteorological stations are loaded into the CEMS MDCC database in the daily routine. 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 the EFAS forecasts as well as for EFFIS. Temperature and precipitation data are used for the SPI (Standard Precipitation Index) and HCWI (Heat and Cold Wave Index) calculated for EDO.
CEMS MDCC would like to thank Météo-France very much for providing their data and for assisting in answering questions.
