We currently compute MOS forecasts with a temporal resolution of 1 hour for the following parameters (if measured by the station):
Temperature and dew point 2 m above ground level:
dew_point_2m:C. Also available in degrees Kelvin with
Precipitation and precipitation probability (both right-aligned):
Global radiation (right-aligned):
total_cloud_cover:p. Also queryable in
Mean sea-level and surface pressure:
Wind speed, direction and gusts (right-aligned):
wind_gusts_10m_1h:ms. Available in
kmh as well.
Similar to the parameters provided by the weather models, you can query some derived quantities based on the above list (and in the same units). If the parameter below refers to an interval,
nh has be replaced with e.g.
6h if you are interested in the 6 hour interval. The currently supported intervals are 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 hours. At the moment you can query the following derived parameters:
Mean, minimal and maximal temperatures:
Minimal and maximal pressures:
sfc_pressure_min_nh:hPa and analogously for msl_pressure.
Effective cloud cover:
Cloud cover means:
low_cloud_cover_mean_nh:p and similarly for medium, high, total, and effective cloud cover.
Mean wind direction and speed:
Right-aligned accumulated precipitation and precipitation probabilities:
Stratospheric Polar Vortex
