The Military Air Force has authorized the distribution of the forecast weather data of the COSMO-LAMI agreement in OPEN and FREE mode, the national reference modeling system for the benefit of the Functional Centers (central and decentralized) of Civil Protection. The data will be available on the Mistral Meteo-Hub platform, maintained by Cineca.
It is an important result for the Italian weather sector, in particular for the national reference modeling. Like the major European Weather Centers, Italy is compliant with the Directive 2019/1024 of the European Parliament, which has definitively established that meteorological data must be made available to communities in OPEN mode.
For Meteo-Hub this is a further step towards its consolidation as a national meteorological HUB for the distribution of meteorological data.
