Canaries, 26.10.2016. Description


Synoptic situation

Heavy precipitation expected in the Canaries. In this region there is only one radar available. It is placed in a very high mountain and needs to cover a large region. Therefore the coverage is limited. NWC SAF precipitation products (CRR and CRR-Ph) can provide valuable information.

  1. It is clear it will be a situation with convection. Can we distinguish from observations which island will be most affected at mid morning 26.10.2016 (09Z)? How much in advance can we predict this?

  2. Was the total precipitation forecasted by the model accurate to regional (island) level?
