Improve measurement density and data links

Satellite and radar data, already used in some areas, need to be used throughout the country. Observations of rainfall and from river gauges need to be linked to weather models for the next few days to allow an increase in lead times of flood forecasts: This would give people more time to prepare, and supply them with ‘probabilistic’ information about the nature, intensity and duration of expected events. This would also improve the accuracy of local forecasts.
