Working together to address weather forecasting challenges
The meeting provides a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences on the use of ECMWF data and products. It is an opportunity for users to provide feedback to ECMWF on forecast performance and on our range of products, and for ECMWF to update users on recent developments of the forecasting system. The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 of June 2014

The main articles deal with impact of the Metop satellites, ocean reanalyses, forecast performance 2013, performance of ECMWF's forecasts, effective spectral resolutions of models, impact of Aeolus wind observations, interactive lakes in the IFS.
New model cycle 40R1
SSTtest_small.png 22 November 2013 On 19 November 2013 ECMWF implemented a new cycle of the Integrated Forecasting System (IFS). This includes several significant changes, such as a new convection scheme which makes showers fall at the right time of day in the model, and an extension to 91 levels in the ensemble (ENS), which helps with representing certain types of cloud, for example. There is now also a direct linkage between atmosphere and ocean in ENS from the start of the forecast, causing the ocean temperature to change more realistically; in turn this can affect the model atmosphere above, and make the weather forecast more accurate.
