Wind gust forecasting algorithm

The algorithm is based on ECMWF’s gust parameter and vertical levels of NWP models. The algorithm considers boundary layer stability conditions to identify gusts related to large scale systems.

Description & Technical Information

Description

The algorithm is based on ECMWF’s gust parameter and vertical levels of NWP models. The algorithm considers boundary layer stability conditions to identify gusts related to large scale systems. The output is the strength of gusts at 10 m height.
