This product displays output from the German global model (ICON). Global models produce forecasts for the entire world usually twice daily. Choose any country in the world using the menus to the left where you will also find a diverse range of products to choose from including temperature, pressure, precipitation, and much more. The German model runs 7 days out into the future but, like all models, gets less accurate as time goes on.
In addition to the main model run, we also offer individual “ensemble member” forecasts for the most crucial parameters. These ensemble members are created by making slight tweaks to the initial conditions of the model, then running it over and over again with those slight tweaks. This process creates a range of possible outcomes that can be analyzed to get valuable insights about the probability of various forecast solutions.
