Home » Directorate of Weather Forecasting Services (DFS) » Weather Modeling and Verification Services

The primary objective is to coordinate weather modeling and verification with a view to enhance the capacity of the UNMA to generate and evaluate weather outlook by providing more detailed operational forecasts and improve accuracy.

The tasks include:

  • Enhance operational forecasters’ capacity in weather modeling and verification.
  • Develop and run empirical statistical and dynamical models.
  • Downscaling global forecasts to regional/national level that takes into account the local climatology
  • Generate short-range weather forecasts
  • Assessment and quantification of the relationship between forecasts and observations.
  • Enhance sub-regional scientific collaboration in NWP activities through joint projects.
