HIGHWAY: UK Met Office Unified Model Analysis (Global Configuration) over the Lake Victoria Region

Summary

This data set includes a subset of analysis products from the UK Met Office Global Unified Model over the HIGHWAY region around Lake Victoria. The analysis is run four times per day at 00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC at a horizontal resolution of approximately 4.4km and with 80 vertical levels. The following fields are included: three hourly precipitation amount, instantaneous precipitation rate, surface and vertical profiles (200, 500, 700, and 850mb) of wind components, temperature, and relative humidity and surface dew point temperature. The data are in NetCDF format.
