The Global Hazard Map (GHM) summarises the risk of high-impact weather across the globe over the coming week using forecasts from the Met Office and ECMWF global ensembles. It includes forecast layers for tropical cyclones (strike probability and tracks), 24-hour precipitation accumulation, maximum wind gust in a 24-hour period, 24-hour snowfall accumulation, as well as severe heat waves and cold waves. We are working with the University of Exeter to investigate if social media data could be used to evaluate the ability of GHM to identify events which cause community impacts.
