DWD's Climate Prediction Website Has Been Updated
In October 2021, seasonal climate predictions have been added to DWD’s climate predictions website as a complement to the decadal climate predictions. With this update, a further step has been taken towards a seamless view of climate predictions over different time scales.
The goal is to present a user-friendly and tailored website that offers
- a consistent selection of available climate predictions and corresponding prediction skills for different timescales (weeks, seasons, years) and
- varying spatial scales (German regions, Germany, Europe, World).
A large part of these products is already implemented and can be accessed in a basic and an expert version in German and English.
The last update contains seasonal predictions for October 2021 to March 2022, including high-resolution statistical downscaling for Germany. The publication started with the version in German language. An updated English version will be provided in a few weeks. From now on, at the beginning of each month, these predictions will be complemented with the predictions for the following six months.
