This document outlines the suggested procedures for the operational production of nowcast warnings by African National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) developed by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) African SWIFT (Science for Weather Information and Forecasting Techniques) project. Information from geostationary satellites is routinely received by African NMHSs in near-real-time and this operating procedure outlines how this can be used to produce valuable nowcast warnings within the day-to-day operations of African NMHSs.
