About this site

This site is designed so as to provide detailed weather forecasts over more than 520 cities across Europe and North Africa. The weather forecasts are provided by BOLAM model, running operationally at the National Observatory of Athens since 1999. Detailed forecasts for Greece are provided in two other sites: http://www.noa.gr/forecast (in English) and http://www.forecasts.gr (in Greek).

Since 2002, NOA provides detailed forecasts for the locations where the Athens 2004 Summer Olympics will take place (http://www.noa.gr/2004).

The development of this site has been made in the frame of the project: Excellency in Research Centers (MIS-64563), financed by the Greek Secretariat for Research and Technology and the 3rd Community Framework Programme "Competitiveness"
