Better precipitation forecasts up to several hours in advance

Where, when and how much precipitation is expected? Information on precipitation not only crucial for water management and agriculture, but also for events, road traffic, aviation and other sectors of the economy. While weather models have gotten better over the decades, predicting the exact location and amount of rainfall remains challenging, even for just a few hours in advance. Deltares, Wageningen University Research (WUR) and the KNMI have investigated how precipitation can be predicted with radar techniques up to several hours in advance. These short-term forecasts have turned out to be extremely accurate in many cases.
