  1. Verification of ALADIN/Portugal forecasts Margarida Belo (Instituto de Meteorologia, Portugal )

  2. >1550m >1250m >300m ALADIN Orography and portuguese stations

  3. Wind speed(10m)

  4. 06UTC 00UTC RMSE 18UTC Inland (north and center of Portugal) 12UTC In average, ALADIN slightly underestimate the wind speed in the inland stations of north and center of Portugal 06UTC Wind speed BIAS

  5. 00UTC 12UTC RMSE 06UTC 18UTC West coast 12UTC Wind speed BIAS In average, ALADIN overestimate the wind speed in the west coast of Portugal

  6. RMSE Wind speed (ALADIN versus ECMWF) BIAS

  7. Observation ALADIN ECMWF ALADIN exceeds the alert value (15.3m/s) for the Civil Agency Examples of good forecasts of wind speed (H+24) ECMWF gives a false alarm

  8. POD = 0.29 Observed event: wind from N POD = 0.40

  9. POD = 0.37 Observed event: wind from W POD = 0.54

  10. POD = 0.30 Observed event: wind from S POD = 0.36

  11. POD = 0.57 Observed event: wind from E POD = 0.50

  12. Mean sea level pressure

  13. H+48 forecast - observation Scatterplot: MSLP Winter 2004 H+24 ALADIN underestimate the MSLP, mainly in anticyclonic situations forecast - observation observation

  14. Temperature (2m)

  15. 18UTC 06UTC RMSE 00UTC 12 UTC Inland (north and center of Portugal) In average, in the inland stations of north and center of Portugal, ALADIN has a warm bias at 12UTC and 18UTC, whereas has a cold bias at 00UTC and 06UTC. 2m temperature 18UTC BIAS

  16. 00UTC RMSE 12 UTC 06UTC West coast 2m temperature BIAS In average, ALADIN has a warm bias in the west coast of Portugal, stronger in summer months

  17. 00UTC 12 UTC 18UTC RMSE 06UTC In average, in the inland stations of south of Portugal, ALADIN has a warm bias at 00UTC and 06UTC, whereas has a cold bias at 12UTC and 18UTC. Évora and Beja 00UTC 2m temperature 12 UTC BIAS

  18. RMSE 2m Temperature (ALADIN versus ECMWF) BIAS

  19. Series August 2003 Castelo Branco: good forecast with both models. Vila Real: ALADIN underestimate T2m.

  20. Bias Td (2m) - ALADIN Às 12UTC After March 2003, ALADIN is too moist in the beginning of the integration

  21. RMSE 2m Td (ALADIN versus ECMWF) BIAS

  22. Winter 2002/03 Accumulated precipitation (PA) in 6-hours (12-18UTC) C1 - PA  0.3 mm/6 h (no rain), C2 - 0.3 mm/6 h < PA  2.0 mm/6 h (light rain), C3 – 2 mm/6 h < PA  10.0 mm/6 h (moderate rain), C4 – PA > 10.0 mm/6 h (heavy rain),

  23. Scores for contingency tables Critical Success Index Probability of detection False Alarm Ratio

  24. Winter 2002/03 ECMWF ALADIN Observed event: no rain (C1) POD = 0.76 FAR = 0.15 BIAS = 0.89 POD = 0.88 FAR = 0.16 BIAS = 0.91 Observed event: light rain (C2) POD = 0.25 FAR = 0.87 BIAS = 1.89 POD = 0.24 FAR = 0.83 BIAS = 1.39

  25. Winter 2002/03 ECMWF ALADIN Observed event: moderate rain (C3) POD = 0.16 FAR = 0.84 BIAS = 1.04 POD = 0.28 FAR = 0.75 BIAS = 1.12 Observed event: heavy rain (C4) POD = 0.19 FAR = 0.90 BIAS = 1.85 POD = 0.00 FAR = 1.00 BIAS = 1.00

  26. Summary 1 • In average, ALADIN slightly underestimate the wind speed in the inland stations of north and center of Portugal. • In average, ALADIN overestimate the wind speed in the west coast of Portugal. • ALADIN underestimate the MSLP, mainly in anticyclonic situations.

  27. Summary 2 • In average, in the inland stations of north and center of Portugal, ALADIN has a warm bias at 12UTC and 18UTC, whereas has a cold bias at 00UTC and 06UTC. • In average, ALADIN has a warm bias in the west coast of Portugal, stronger in summer months. • In average, in the inland stations of south of Portugal, ALADIN has a warm bias at 00UTC and 06UTC, whereas has a cold bias at 12UTC and 18UTC.
