Special Issue Information
According to the complexity of the mesoscale forecasting models often used in the weather predictions, and to the input data used and the globality of their forecasts, the solutions indicated by them (the intensity of an expected phenomena) sometimes can differ significantly from the values punctually measured at meteorological stations.
In fact, the highest resolutions of the mesoscale model do not exceed 1 km and it is well known how meteorological variables (for example rain or wind) can vary considerably between two close grid points.
This consequence is caused by the influence that the surrounding environment may have on these variables in addition to their very nature.
Mesoscale models cannot take into account the environment in its total complexity for each single point of the globe. For activities that affect human life, and not only, it is necessary to make accurate predictions on the occurrence of a certain meteorological phenomenon in a certain area with high vulnerability in order to reduce material damage or human life loss as much as possible. Our main objective is to collect the methods that are already being used or to find new approaches useful to improve the forecasts predictions “at a specific point”, making them more accurate. The methods could include, but are not limited to, interventions on the models themselves and on post-processing techniques, such as machine learning techniques.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
