This paper elaborates on the link between weather and climate in the context of providing climate services that will contribute to more efficient water services today, which, in their turn, will be better adapted to climate change impacts and conditions of tomorrow. It illustrates this by discussing the conceptual view and expected outcome of IMPREX, a newly started European research project built on the notion that “experience in managing current day weather extremes is the best learning school to anticipate consequences of future climate”. This paper illustrates possible ways to increase the link between information and services for the water sector, by addressing weather and climate time scales and discussing the underlying concepts of the IMPREX project and its expected outcome.
