Plot of the month (Nov 2017): extratropical storm in a 25km model

Plot of the month (November 2017) is from the PRIMAVERA project and shows how extratropical storms are represented in a high-resolution, 25 km global climate model.

Following on from previous posts, the figure below shows in detail how winds and precipitation, particularly along the trailing front and the maximum over France, are represented more realistically in a 25 km global model.
