26 Sep. 2018 The Met Office of the UK began to provide RP5 websites and applications with forecasts of its new model (PS41). The above mentioned forecast model PS41 officially became the operational model of the Met Office.

The Met Office reported that the improvements expected should be to early winter forecasts (the period of the first snowfall and first snow cover). It is assumed that, in comparison with the previous model, the following weather parameters for the above period will be predicted more accurately:
1) type of precipitation (snow or rain),
2) air temperature,
3) atmospheric pressure,
4) wind.
