Media Weather Forecasts
The EMS is highlighting outstanding examples of good practice in Media Weather Forecasts at the Media Session of the EMS Annual Meetings and through a Media Weather Forecast Award (established as a TV Forecast Award, and in 2020 extended to include all relevant media channels through which forecasts are broadcast).
This site is a compilation of the selected Media Forecasts.
Highlight 2020: Weather Forecast by Zoltán Üveges, OMSZ, Hungary
Zoltán Üveges’ presentation demonstrates how probability forecasts can be communicated. He also provided comprehensive explanations of the weather at a larger European scale that would affect his country. Consequently he provided his viewers with great understanding not only of what the forecast was, but also why the weather was happening. In addition, he discussed an exceptional episode of desert sand, including a dust /aerosol forecast.
Zoltán Üveges is calm and in control. All of his graphics were labelled well and he addressed each element comprehensively, with nice transitions between different visuals. This is a good example of a Best Practice.
