Welcome to the Archive of monthly Weather Briefings

Once a month EUMeTrain organizes a Weather Briefing open to everyone to discuss the present weather situation. The basis of the discussions are todays satellite images and the corresponding numerical weather prediction data. A basic knowledge on conceptual models used in satellite meteorology is of advantage to follow the presentations. The Weather Briefings are performed by meteorologists from Croatia, Portugal, Finland and Austria. At the end of the briefings, participants have the opportunity to discuss with the presenters. The sessions are recorded and made available in the internet.
