"No," said Pen calmly. "It's among the other keys on the rack in my sewing-room. My father will get it for you."

This conference is organised in the frame of EUMETNET (European Meteorological Network) which includes the project ASIST dedicated to nowcasting. The goal of the conference is to promote recent advances in the theory and practice of nowcasting in Europe and other parts of the world. The conference welcomes participants from operational, research and forecast user communities to discuss methods for improving the quality of nowcasting in Europe. The scientific program will feature keynote addresses as well as contributed presentations and offer room for discussions.

    • Recommendations

Just as he was beginning to properly appreciate his canteen, he learned a sharp lesson, that comes to all of us, as to how much "cussedness" there can be in the simplest things when they happen to go wrong. He went out one day and got a canteen of nice sweet milk, which he and "Shorty" Elliott heartily enjoyed. He hung the canteen upon the ridge-pole of the tent, and thought no more about it until the next day, when he came in from drill, and found the tent filled with an odor so vile that it made him cough.Joint Sessions with WMO/WWRP Working Groups

"I went armed," said Pen. "And I forced him to come with me. That's all."They started to walk slowly away from the direction of the camp. Pen repeated Blanche Paglar's letter to him word for word. It arrested his attention, and he quieted down. When they found themselves drawing too near the lighthouse, they turned and came slowly back, Don straining Pen against his side.Yong Wang (ZAMG)

"Sit down a minute, Dad," she said. "I want to talk to you.""You'll soon get a fresh start, now ... You're driving just as fast as ever!" 

Pen put this into the agreed place, and returned to the house, wondering how she would put in the hour and a half that remained before eleven. She determined to watch to see whether he came for the note. So she went up-stairs rather noisily, and came down again very quietly, carrying with her what she needed for her disguise.EUMETNET AEMET
