Abstract
The presented work explores the results of radar-based nowcasting at European scale with the mosaics produced within the EUMETNET project OPERA (www.opera.eu). These 8-hour nowcasts (with a resolution of 4km and 15 minutes) have been used to identify and anticipate potential hazards induced by precipitation. Hazard assessment is done based on two approaches: (1) the point values of accumulated precipitation (hazard assessment is based on the regional thresholds established within the EUMETNET pr...
