Recent developments in operations at ECMWF

Horst Boettger  

In my presentation I will address recent changes and upgrades in the ECMWF operational forecast system, product development with particular emphasis on severe weather prediction, as well as the performance of the deterministic and the probabilistic medium-range forecasting system.

Monthly and seasonal forecasts are now produced operationally at ECMWF, some of the products will be presented together with a performance assessment. The talk will be concluded with an outlook into plans for future developments.
