Climate Outlook

RIMES generates seasonal anomaly and fortnightly outlooks. Seasonal anomaly outlooks are generated using available global and regional forecast product. Currently, they are provided on an experimental basis to Timor-Leste.

Fortnightly outlooks are also generated using the Weather Research Forecast (WRF) model with 27 km horizontal resolution. Outlooks are provided to Timor-Leste and updated on a weekly basis. The model is integrated every week, using data from the National Center for Environmental Prediction - Global Forecast System (NCEP-GFS) as initial and boundary conditions.
