Short summary
Assimilation of satellite navigation data into a popular weather model is yet another example of how to turn non-meteorological data into valuable information about the current state of the troposphere. Results show that observations from ground-based GPS receivers can improve humidity and rain forecasts in most severe weather events. It is another reason to extend the adoption of GPS data into weather forecasting across Europe.
