Example of a Weather Situation Evaluation

Weather forecast using MetX for Europe, North America, Africa and Australia on March 4, 2022, at 06:00 UTC.

  • Europe: A high-pressure system is situated over southern Norway, resulting in calm weather conditions. However, the first low-pressure systems are affecting the British Isles and the Iberian Peninsula, bringing unsettled weather.
  • North America: The northeastern US states are experiencing cold temperatures due to the influence of an approaching high-pressure system. Meanwhile, a low-pressure area near California is causing snowfall in lower elevations.
  • Africa: A tropical depression located over the West Indies is causing rainfall in northern Madagascar and along the southeastern African coastline. Additionally, the foothills of a low-pressure system over Spain are bringing rainfall to northern Morocco and Algeria.
  • Australia: The states of Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Queensland are currently experiencing widespread hot temperatures. Meanwhile, an area of low pressure is responsible for bringing rainfall to areas like Adelaide and South East Queensland.
