2m Temperature: Weekly mean anomalies & warming stripes for the 3 ECMWF locations (Reading, Bonn, Bologna)

Base Time: Mon 17 Jan 2022 00 UTC T+168 Valid time: Mon 17 Jan 2022 00 UTC - Mon 24 Jan 2022 00 UTC

The anomalies have been calculated relative to a 20-year model climatology. The areas where the ensemble forecast is not significantly different from the climatology are blanked.

A “warming stripes” are a visual representations of the change in temperature. #ShowYourStripes

Forecasts, analyses, climate re-analyses, reforecasts and multi-model data are available from our archive (MARS) or via dedicated data servers or via point-to-point dissemination.

Accessing forecasts

Researchers, WMO members, commercial users and satellite data providers can gain access to ECMWF forecast products under one of our various license agreement types.

Workshops and education

Education is a key element of our work at ECMWF, enabling our partners to get the most from ECMWF's services and develop an advanced understanding of forecasting.

ECMWF lecture theatre

ECMWF workshops are open to the worldwide meteorological community, though some training is restricted to member states.
