UK Met Office’s High-Resolution Weather Forecast Data is Now on AWS

Posted on: Aug 3, 2017

Archive data from the UK Met Office Global and Regional Ensemble Prediction System (MOGREPS) is now available on Amazon S3. Data from two models is available: MOEGREPS-UK, a high resolution weather forecast covering the United Kingdom, and MOGREPS-G, a global weather forecast. MOGREPS is primarily designed to aid the forecasting of rapid storm development, wind, rain, snow and fog. Accurate weather forecasts allow farmers to predict when to plant crops, let airlines know when it's safe to fly, help governments plan for transportation hazards, and are useful in a number of other ways.

You can find out more about the data and ways you might want to use it at the Met Office Informatics Lab data page. You can also find out more about these models at the Met Office MOGREPS web page.
