In April 2021, the EFAS-MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from Flanders’ Hydrological Information Centre (HIC) - Flanders Hydraulics Research into the operational processing routines. HIC station data are downloaded on a daily basis from the HIC data portal. In total, hourly precipitation data from 18 stations are loaded into the EFAS-MDCC database. The data are processed and included into the gridded precipitation fields produced every day in the early morning as input for the EFAS forecasts.
EFAS MDCC would like to thank HIC very much for providing their data through the data portal and for providing user support.
