Dear reanalysis user,
We are excited to let you know that the long awaited ERA5T has now been released and is available from the Climate Data Store.
ERA5T provides preliminary data for ERA5 (successor of ERA-Interim) on a daily basis, with a 5-day delay from real time. This enables you to retrieve ERA5 data up to 5 days ago (much improved compared to the 2-3 months delay for the release of validated ERA5 data). Please note that ERA5T on model levels will be made available at a later stage.
Access to ERA5T is transparent: all you need to do is to extend the data request dates.
The nature of preliminary data implies that ERA5 data younger than 3 months has the potential of being revised in case of any issue found. If such issue were to be found however, it would be documented and communicated to users via mailing list and on our User Forum. If you want to find out whether or not the data you downloaded contains ERA5T, you can follow the instructions described in the ERA5 data documentation at https://confluence.ecmwf.int/display/CKB/ERA5+data+documentation .
