Today the AMPRO (Italian Meteo Expert Association) published an article on SINOPTICA in its magazine Nova ex Coelo (NEC):

The title is “SINOPTICA – Un progetto di previsione eventi meteo estremi a breve termine” and the aim of this contribution is to let the Italian meteorological community (professional and passionate) know that the extreme weather events are a challenge for the air traffic management and air traffic control, and that SINOPTICA is developing an innovative nowcasting algorithm for such events which can be integrated with the ATM/ATC procedures.

As a reference for the readers, we show the nowcasting of Vertically Integrated Liquid with the Method for Object-Based Diagnostic Evaluation for two case studies (Milano Malpensa and Venezia Marco Polo) compared to the radar observation.
