The Hydro-Meteorological R&D team develops and improves models and post-processing systems to provide short-range forecasts of precipitation, snowmelt, runoff and soil moisture. Stochastic rainfall nowcasts (0-6 hour range) are currently produced by the Short Term Ensemble Prediction System (STEPS) which is implemented within the Met Office?s UK Numerical Weather Prediction Post-Processing (UKPP) system and provides important guidance to the joint Environment Agency/Met Office Flood Forecasting Centre (FFC) and the equivalent facility for Scotland.
Current precipitation forecasting R&D aims to deliver a seamless short range (48 hours), high resolution (2 km) ensemble precipitation forecast by blending forecasts from storm-scale and synoptic-scale deterministic and probabilistic configurations of the Met Office?s Unified Model (MetUM) using cascade modelling framework from STEPS.
To develop, test, implement and write-up new and improved methods for providing seamless high-resolution probabilistic precipitation forecasts for the UK using advanced ensemble nowcast techniques and Numerical Weather Prediction model outputs.
Training will be provided as necessary in software tools and project management.
