Variations in the weather can have a marked effect on power stations operations, whether it is access issues due to snow and ice or high level maintenance delays caused by strong winds or lightning, the consequences can prove very costly.
Having a better understanding of the causes and impacts of the weather, together with how the forecasts are produced and their strengths and limitations will help inform both planning and mitigation activities.
