FLOOD FORECASTING IN THE REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA HYDROLOGICAL FORECASTING IN REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA Regional Workshop on Hydrological Forecasting and Real Time Data Management May 2009, Dubrovnik, CROATIA Vasko STOJOV Nikola PETRESKI, Boza KOSTADINOVSKA HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL SERVICE – MACEDONIA
... Since absolute flood protection is almost impossible, flood forecasting is the only chance to avoid catastrophe.
Map of the main catchments Aegean See Adriatic See Black See
Climatic conditions - In the higher regions of the country exist mountainous climate with various subtypes; -In the other parts is changing from continental to variable continental; -In the river Vardar valley and in the lower parts of some tributaries exist Sub- Mediterranean climate.
Flood Forecasting Activities Collection and processing of Hydrometeorological data Analysing meteorological products; Receiving Weather Forecast; Analysing hydrological data; Water Forecast; Hydrological Information and Alarming.
Meteorological Data Needs of new automatic stations especially in the mountainous regions Collection and processing of
Hydrological Data Needs of new automatic stations especially in the mountainous regions Collection and processing of
Flood forecasting of the upper catchment of the r.Vardar Hydrological Station Info Hydrological Station Rain Gauge Station
Graph-analytical method for Flood Forecasting Estimation of average precipitation for relevant catchments;
Hydrological Information and Alarming Centre for Crisis; Centre for informing and alarming; Relevant Ministries; Public and Media
What is reality With our NMM model, weather forecast is on very high level; METEO ALARM give public information about bad weather situations; but for better water forecast we need modernization of our hydrological network, raingauge system and update of our hydrological forecast model.
