PROJECT SUMMARY

This project developed a method for blending storm scale Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP)forecasts with an ensemble nowcasting system and tested whether the new approach has the capability to produce improved rainfall forecasts for flood prediction. The final report detailing the research and results is available from the following link: http://research.metoffice.gov.uk/research/nwp/publications/papers/technical_reports/reports/550.pdf
