|meteoblue calculates own high resolution weather forecast models. |
Spatial resolution describes the number of grid cells in a forecast model, as defined by the distance between two grid cells within the model.
Through high spatial resolution, i.e. small distance between grid cells, a local forecast can show the effects of local air currents, topography and soil cover. The forecasts produced thereby show local weather differences more precisely.
Examples of the capabilities of numerical high resolution forecast are:
|High resolution produces high precision: the weather simulations we produce are highly accurate and often more precise than forecasts made with other technologies or "by hand". We show the precision we produce on our "Verification" page.|
The resolution we produce is shown on our page describing our weather models . Results of high resolution model are shown on the page documenting "the Difference". High resolution in action can be seen through our actual forecasts under the p☼int Meteograms, Picto-cast and with our meteoMaps. Registered users can test high resolution detail with the free point+ Test subscription.
meteoblue detail weather forecasts are calculated for 1-5 days ahead. For longer forecast ranges, local detail becomes less important compared to simulating the range of possible weather developments. Therefore, 7-14 day forecasts are calculated with lower resolution (generally 50 km) for an entire region. The influence of longer range regional forecasts on local conditions is the calculated by adjusting the extended forecast to the local conditions, mainly for temperature and wind.
