Forecasters at the Hungarian Meteorological Service (OMSZ) make extensive use of ECMWF’s high-resolution (HRES) and ensemble forecasts (ENS) in their daily work. In addition, like most other European national meteorological services, OMSZ also runs limited-area models (LAM) to provide improved forecast information at even higher resolution. OMSZ, which is part of the ALADIN consortium, uses the ALADIN and AROME models. Running these LAMs requires not only initial conditions (ICs) but also lateral boundary conditions (LBCs). Their availability has been ensured through ECMWF's Optional Boundary Condition (BC) Programme.
