Year 2019

In order to communicate the quality of weather forecasts, MeteoSwiss has been using a global score called COMFORT since 2012. By analyzing the evolution of this score from the beginning, we can see a clear positive trend. But during the first half of the year 2018, a temporary reduction could be observed in COMFORT. This drop was the trigger to initiate the detailed analysis presented in this report.
