Platform
Description Variables (non-exhaustive list) Included datasets Information
last updated on:
ECMWF produce and disseminate weather forecast data for the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NHMSs) of ECMWF Member and Co-operating States and their authorised users.

ECMWF also archives data and makes this available to authorised users. Some data is also made available under licence and some is publicly available.
Medium range
Set I: Atmospheric Model high resolution 10-day forecast (HRES)
Single prediction that uses observations, prior information about the Earth-system, and ECMWF’s highest-resolution model.
Set II – Ocean Wave Model high resolution 10-day Forecast (HRES-WAM)
HRES-WAM (Wave Model) coupled to the atmospheric model (HRES).
Set III – Atmospheric model Ensemble 15-day forecast (ENS)
Ensemble of forecasts providing an estimate of the reliability of a single forecast.
Set IV – Ocean Wave Model Ensemble 15-day forecast (ENS-WAM)
Ensemble of forecasts providing an estimate of the reliability of a single forecast.
Extended range
Set VI – Atmospheric Model Ensemble extended forecast (ENS extended)
Twice a week, ENS is extended up to 46 days. ENS extended comprises ensembles of individual forecasts and post-processed products of average conditions (e.g. weekly averages) and the associated uncertainty.
Long range
Set V – Seasonal 7-month forecast (SEAS)
SEAS comprises ensembles of individual forecasts coupled to an ocean model and post-processed products of average conditions (e.g. monthly averages) with the associated uncertainty. Products are available up to 7 months ahead.
Web products
Set VII – Web Products
Analysis and forecast products in graphical format.
