Meteoalarm: a new pan-European service on severe weather
A new Website www.meteoalarm.eu was launched on World Meteorological Day (23 March 2007) at El Escorial in Madrid, Spain. Meteoalarm provides a snapshot of where severe and potentially dangerous weather might occur over the following 48 hours in Europe.
Meteoalarm.eu has been developed by Eumetnet, the network of European Meteorological Services, with the support of WMO. The warnings are provided by the various National Weather Services in Europe.
The Website is easy to understand, using a combination of symbols and colour codes to represent different types and severity of weather events. The service includes a vast amount of weather phenomena such as heavy rainfall with flooding; coastal storm surges and high tides; thunderstorms; extreme heat or cold; snow and avalanches.
