Convection in Carpathian Basin


The time from April to October is the most favorable part of the year for convection in Europe. Different types of convective systems may occur during that period, such as single and multi-cell storms, squall lines or super cells. These phenomena can be hazardous, causing a lot of damage and in some cases even fatalities. It is very important for the forecasters to issue warnings as soon as possible so people can take immediate actions.

This simulator will enable you to practice forecasting convection over the Carpathian Basin using synop charts, satellite, radar and NWP data (you will find all the data available in the simulator). Your task will be to issue special warnings for two outdoor events.
