Draft autumn/winter (2014/2015) forecasts of temperature and precipitation for Devon

You are here

Working closely with CDE, the project team issued draft forecasts to a small group of farmers in Devon during autumn/winter 2014-2015. Six forecasts were issued, one at the end of each month from October to February, each giving a three-month outlook for temperature and precipitation downscaled to Devon from the UK Contingency Planners Forecasts (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/publicsector/contingency-planners) provided by the Met Office. The forecasts were modified through the season in response to feedback from the farmers, and further development is planned for the product for winter 2015/2016. The .pdf files containing the draft forecasts are attached below.
