Forecast charts and data
We provide current forecasts, climate reanalyses and specific datasets. These are available via the web, point-to-point dissemination, data servers and broadcasting.
The warmth experienced across Europe this week is reflected in ECMWF’s 2-metre maximum temperature Extreme Forecast Index on 27 February 2019 (left). The right-hand plot shows areas where similar temperature extremes were found globally on the same day.
Advancing weather science
Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.
ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
International collaboration is fundamental to the work of ECMWF, working with the EU and the meteorological community at large, including the World Meteorological Organization, space agencies, and scientists around the world.
