Welcome to the Simulator

Your shift will begin on 09:00 UTC and ends at 18:00 UTC on the same day. You will be forecasting for the evening and overnight period. At first you will have time to get used to your new work station and of course to the weather situation over Eastern Africa. After that you will be asked to prepare some forecasts!

These tasks include:

In the upper toolbar you can find different satellite and surface weather observations and also information from the NWP models. In the left sidebar you can find basic information, the forecast tasks under the "Tasks" section.


The time step will be different from real life. Time will be passing 5 times faster than normal - so that 1 minute in simulator will last for 12 seconds in real life. Are you ready to work hard and not crack under pressure!
