Currently available computer power allows to run operational numerical weather prediction models at resolutions higher than 10 km. The aim of such high resolution mod-eling is the prediction of local weather, including oro-graphically induced winds and local precipitation patterns. In this range the hydrostatic approximation is no longer valid and(More)
Numerical experiments with the model chain of the German Weather Service are conducted to find the reasons for the bad performance of the operational precipitation forecast in the case of the Elbe flood in August 2002. The sensitivity to initial and to boundary data as well as to a new precipitation scheme and the horizontal model resolution is inspected.(More)
