Fulfilling the international responsibilities of the Regional Climate Centre of WMO, the North-Eurasian Climate Centre (NEACC) held online the 18th session of the North-Eurasian Climate Outlook Forum (NEACOF-18) from 19 to 20 May 2020 on the base of the Hydrometcentre of Russia.

The first day of NEACOF-18 (May 19, 2020) was organized in the form of a training seminar. The lectures of leading NEACC experts were presented, each concluded by follow-up discussions on the development of methods and technologies of climate forecasting, analysis and predictability of atmospheric variability, and practical use of climate information.

On the second day of NEACOF-18, climate monitoring and seasonal forecasting issues were discussed based on the input from NHMSs of the CIS countries and other forecast centres with the main goal of developing a consensus forecast of surface air temperature and precipitation for the upcoming summer season 2020 over northern Eurasia.

NEACOF-18 gathered representatives of Secretariat of the WMO, specialists from the Hydrometcentre of Russia, A.I. Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory, Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, Regional Training Centre of WMO in Roshydromet. NHMS of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, and Uzbekistan.

Consensus forecast of anomalies in surface air temperature and precipitation for JJA 2020.

Consistency maps of forecasts based on 5 models ((Sl-AV, MGO, TCC, CanSIP, CFS2). Positive (negative) values (in %) mean the number of models in percentage predicting positive (negative) surface air temperature anomalies.
