In October 2019, the EFAS-MDCC team integrated the meteorological station data from Sweden into the operational processing routines. SMHI station data are downloaded every hour from the SMHI Open Data portal. In total, data for 1671 stations have been loaded into the EFAS-MDCC database for the period 1970 to present. Available data for precipitation, temperature, wind, relative humidity, solar radiation, sunshine duration, dew-point temperature and cloud cover are processed. Precipitation data for more than 400 stations are included into the gridded precipitation fields produced every day in the early morning as input for the EFAS forecasts. For the other parameters used by LISVAP and LISFLOOD, the number of stations is somewhat smaller.
EFAS-MDCC would like to thank SMHI very much for providing their data through the Open Data portal and also for providing very helpful and responsive support to their data users.
