The Weather-induced Extremes Digital Twin (Extremes DT) will provide a new capability for monitoring meteorological, hydrological and air quality extremes complementing existing capabilities from national and European services. The system consists of a global component that will produce very high-resolution (2 to 4km) weather simulations for the coming four days, and a regional component that can be activated and configured on demand, allowing experts to zoom-in on extreme events taking place in Europe (at resolutions between 500 and 750m). The On-Demand component is being developed by a European consortium led by Météo France
