Meteorological Co-operation on Operational NWP (Numerical weather prediction) between Sweden and Norway

DescriptionMetCoOp has run as a project since August 2011 with the aim to facilitate an operational organisation for the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (met.no) for production of numerical weather prediction from March 2014. The vision for the project is to deliver the best short-term weather forecast for common areas. Numerical weather forecasting is resource demanding and the quality of the forecast is important. Global models are getting better, and it is a challenge to produce better forecast on a finer grid and on shorter timescale. I will present the status of the project (what is operational numerical weather prediction about?), how it is to co-operate across the borders, share the high performance computer system and something about future plans.
