The Unified Model

The atmospheric part of the model used by is the UK Met Office’s state-of-the-art Unified Model; the same model that is used to produce every weather forecast you see on British terrestrial television. There are, of course, some differences between the way in which the model is run to produce a commercial weather forecast and how we are running it, the most obvious being the resolution.
