"The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune is striving to advance prediction of monsoon weather and climate change seamlessly across different scales. Under the umbrella of National Monsoon Mission, a programme of Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), IITM made landmark achievement in monsoon forecasting and research. Monsoon Mission also brought working partnership between the academic, research and development organisations, both national and international and the MoES to improve the monsoon forecast skill across the country. Through this path-breaking Mission, IITM has setup a state-of-the-art dynamical modelling framework for improving skills that predict seasonal and extended as well as short and medium range monsoons up to two weeks. The improved models are passed on to India Meteorological Department (IMD) for their operational use.
Weather tomorrowShort-range weather forecasting system
With the current advancement in weather sciences in India, it would become increasingly difficult to fault the weatherman. The newly developed path-breaking short-range weather forecasting system will not only bring India at par with many developed nations in terms of weather prediction, but also assist well-informed de
