Objectives


Severe weather events
Severe weather events

  • Currently the SWFDP focuses on the following severe weather events:

  • Heavy rain/flooding

  • Deficit of precipitation/dry spells;

  • Strong winds in relation to thunderstorms

  • Hazardous waves over Indian Ocean and major lakes in the region



The cascading forecasting process
The Cascading Forecasting Process

  • In the framework of the general organization of the Global Data-Processing and Forecasting System (GDPFS), the SWFDP implies a co-ordinated functioning among three types of GDPFS centres.

  • These are:

  • Global NWP Centres to provide available NWP products, including in the form of probabilities;

  • Regional Centres to interpret information received from the global NWP centres,

  • run limited-area models to refine products,

  • liaise with the participating NMCs;

  • The NMCs to issue alerts, advisories, severe weather warnings;

  • to liaise and collaborate with Media, and Disaster Management and CivilPprotection Authorities; and

  • to contribute to the evaluation of the project.

Cascading FCST ( cont’d)

The first phase of this project commenced October 2011 and focused on:

  • heavy rain,

  • strong winds,

  • sea/lake waves, and

  • prolonged dry spells.

    The participating Services and Centres in the SWFDP Eastern Africa include:

  • NMHSs: Kenya, Burundi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda

  • Regional Centres: RSMC, KMD - Nairobi, RSMC, TMA - Dar es Salaam; and

  • Global Products Centres:

  • Exeter (Met Office UK),

  • Washington (NOAA/NCEP ),

  • European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecast( ECMWF). and

  • DWD (Germany)  




Concluding remarks
Concluding Remarks

  • Various economic sectors are highly dependant on and influenced by weather and climate

  • A clear knowledge of current and expected conditions of weather and climate provides the vital information for important decisions in long-range planning of these sectors

  • Each NMHSs contributes to the disaster management through its forecasts, advisories and warnings of severe weather, and the monitoring of climate.

  • WMO SWFDP Synergy with the EAC’s Five-years Meteorological Development Plan and Investment Strategy (2013-2018) would enhance early warning system for disaster risk reduction in the EAC region.
