  • violet or pink regions: high resolution, higher reliability forecast data is available in the violet/pink regions marked on the map. Upon request, we can start this kind of forecasting service for any other area. Source: IFS model from ECMWF, UK. Frequency of the update is once in at UTC hours 00, 06, 12 and 18 (4 forecasts runs per day, every 6 hours). Forecast range is from DAY+0 up to DAY+3. Original temporal resolution for the first 48 hours is 1 hour,  hours 48-84 are provided received in 3 hourly original resolution, however in the final response this can be interpolated to finer into higher resolution. The pink regions are our latest IFS additions.
  • the rest of the map (in white color) is covered by lower resolution global forecasting data from GFS model (NOAA, USA). Forecast range is from DAY+0 up to DAY+10. Frequency of the update is once in 6 hours.
