China Meteorological Administration (CMA) have launched a new version of National Meteorological Center (NMC) website, forecasting precipitation in Africa.
Previously, NMC’s precipitation forecast was confined to Asia, Europe, North America and Oceania. Since November 2019, NMC has overcome a series of technical problems like artificial integrated correction, MICAPS forecasting and product dissemination tool update to facilitate forecasting operations of precipitation across the African continent.
The website went live following 18 months of trials, users can now log on and access meteorological prediction information like quantifiable precipitation and severe weather forecasts for the next 24 to 84 hours.
NMC’s rain forecasting operation in South America entered trial operation at the beginning of March.
