A new successful work related to WRF-ERDS workflow, developed in the framework of Lexis project, was presented by Paola Mazzoglio at the European Meteorological Society conference on September 6th.
The timely identification of heavy rainfall, involving the WRF forecasting model and ERDS alert system, has been tested and validated on the rainfall event that affected the Sardinia region between 27 and 29 November 2020, with significant impact over the southern and eastern areas of the island.
Obtained results show again how it is possible to significantly improve the capabilities of early warning systems taking advantage of HPC resources.
