In June 2021, the CEMS MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from the Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya (SMC) into the operational processing routines. SMC provides precipitation, temperature, relative air humidity, solar radiation, as well as wind speed and direction data on a 30-minute basis. Depending on the parameter data from 92 (wind speed) up to 185 (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 the EFAS forecasts as well as for EFFIS.
CEMS MDCC would like to thank SMC very much for providing their data through the open data portal and for providing help to resolve questions from their data users.
