The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) is an independent intergovernmental organisation supported by 34 states.
ECMWF is both a research institute and a 24/7 operational service, producing and disseminating numerical weather predictions to its Member States. This data is fully available to the national meteorological services in the Member States. The Centre also offers a catalogue of forecast data that can be purchased by businesses worldwide and other commercial customers
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
ECMWF is a world leader in data assimilation research and development. The quality of our forecasts depends on how well we use information received in real-time from the global observing system, which consists of numerous satellite instruments, weather stations, ships, buoys, and other components.
You will find the Catalogue of Real-time data here: https://www.ecmwf.int/search/datasets?f=im_field_audience%3A608 .
You can order data through one of our catalogue contact points (https://www.ecmwf.int/en/forecasts/accessing-forecasts/order-real-time-forecasts/delivery-arrangements) or, if you are located outside of the ECMWF Member States territory, directly through ECMWF Data Services (https://www.ecmwf.int/en/forecasts/accessing-forecasts/order-real-time-forecasts/).
Depending on your location you can order archive data (https://www.ecmwf.int/en/forecasts/accessing-forecasts/order-historical-datasets) directly through ECMWF (you may have to seek authorisation from your catalogue contact point:https://www.ecmwf.int/forecasts/access-forecasts/how-can-i-obtain-ecmwf-data). Specific data sets from our data portal (http://apps.ecmwf.int/datasets/) are available free of charge, subject to terms and conditions.
