95 active stations of the Service public de Wallonie have been integrated in the data collection
In December 2022, the CEMS MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from the Service public de Wallonie (SPW) into the operational processing routines. SPW provides precipitation data of 95 active rain gauges on an hourly basis, which are now loaded into the CEMS MDCC database and used in the daily routine. The data are processed and included into the precipitation grids produced every day as input for the EFAS forecasts as well as for EFFIS. Further, the precipitation data are used for the SPI (Standard Precipitation Index), which is calculated for EDO.
CEMS MDCC would like to thank SPW very much for providing their data and for their support during the integration process.
