With new satellite and teledetection instruments, regional and fine scale numerical models, and also with the use of numerical model prediction ensembles for a multi-approach model in the day to day forecast, meteorological data flux will continue to considerably increase on the forecaster's workstation in the coming years. More automation of production will be necessary, and in the same time the role and the tools of the forecasters have to be redefined.

The most important tasks of the forecasters will be to monitor and validate numerical model, and to analyse data observation to detect high-impact events. It is an extremely difficult task to take into consideration all evidence from the model output along with observational and satellite data and to assess correctly the development of a severe weather system. So, forecasters will need to rely on more sophisticated automation/decision system to deal with all the data available.

We will present ideas about new generation of forecasters' workstation, including concept of automatic diagnostics and decision aid products for forecasters.
