A new study has used initial and lateral boundary conditions produced by ECMWF’s Integrated Forecasting System (IFS) to investigate the predictability of a highly localised heavy rain event in mountainous terrain in Armenia using a limited-area model. The study illustrates the importance of high-quality initial and boundary conditions and highlights challenges in accurately forecasting such events.
