Last paragraph in this article ‘’ Met Eireann is moving from numeric to probabilistic forecasting’ AND ’ Met Eireann will now be getting its forecasts processed in the UK’ !!
Jaysus, so bang goes the conversation starter about the weather forecasters ( Met E) being wrong about every parish in the country. I mean , we’re all used to it being unreliable, its reliably unreliable- cant it just be left alone … we can have an inquiry in 20 years…
‘‘Met Éireann used the facilities at the centre to run its numerical weather predictions software and also improvements to make the models run faster, says Sarah O’Reilly, head of technology with the forecaster.
This is about to change however because Met Éireann is moving away from numeric to probabilistic forecasting systems.
A close working relationship continues between the two bodies in climate modelling, says Prof Desplat but Met Éireann will now be getting its forecasts processed in the UK. He puts this down to “chronic underfunding” of the centre and its activities.’’
