Long-range forecast services (URL and language(s) used). Relevant forecasts, such as forecast for onset/end of rainy/dry season, drought advisory/warning and agrometeorological forecast, are also considered as services concerned.
Methods taken by NMHS to generate long-range forecast products (e.g., model and statistical application). (URLs and language(s) used) if relevant information is provided through the Internet.
Firstly, collected observation data for LRF, select analogue year, analysis weather condisions in selected analogue year, analysis and forecast from other website from the Internet and then we make discussion for seasonal forecast.
Use of climate products provided by other NMHSs or meteorological institutes for long-range forecast
TCC, ECMWF, IMD, TMD, WMO-LC, CPC
III. Climate Monitoring
Climate monitoring information (e.g., climate diagnostics including analysis of climate variability and extremes) (URLs and language(s) used). Regular climate monitoring reports can be listed here.
Monitoring of climate extremes (including drought monitoring and climate watch)
El Niño Monitoring
Climate Change Monitoring
IV. Climate Data Services
Historical climate data provided through the Internet (URL and language(s) used)
Digitization of historical climate data. If no, plan for digitization.
Provision of climate data through the website with limited/unlimited access
14 elements of climate data are available on online for 37 stations. But, our bank system for both Economic Bank and Myanmar foreign Trade Bank checking the entry of payment has some challenges. So, this system is not very successful
V. Regional Cooperation for the improvement of climate information services
Name(s) of Regional Climate Outlook Forums (RCOFs) in which the NMHS participates
Provision of relevant information based on the consensus forecast at RCOF(s) to domestic users
