It will be managed by the Met Office, with data also being used to predict changes to the global climate, and influence Government environmental policies in kind.
The UK government has announced plans to spend £1.2 billion ($1.6 billion) on what it describes as "the world's most powerful weather and climate supercomputer".
In line with the Authorities, the supercomputer is anticipated to be the world's most superior of its variety devoted to climate and local weather. This will be 10 times faster than the current Cray XC40 computer.
The £1.2 billion platform is expected to be the world's most advanced weather and climate prediction platform, and will be funded entirely by the United Kingdom government.
The U.K. was the initially key financial system to say it will stage out greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 - a so named web-zero goal it suggests the new computing energy will help it to reach. Just this month, storms Ciara and Dennis were predicted and mapped as much as 5 days before they hit the UK.
The declaration was made by Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Secretary Alok Sharma who is also the President the UN's 2020 Climate Change Conference (aka COP26).
The Met Office is already scrolling through supercomputer catalogues with an eye on replacing its current £97m supercomputer, and is about to invest a staggering £1.2 billion of government funding on an even super-er-computer that'll be able to tell us it's raining in less time than ever and then freeze and spin around the actual droplets in bullet time, and you'll be able to see the shed reflected in the droplets. Power level jumps won't stop there, as in five years time the new supercomputer will get an upgrade bumping it up in performance by a further three times.
The management of the new technology will be at the UK Meteorological Office.
In addition, it will also offer more sophisticated rainfall predictions which could help determine the best locations for flood defences - something that could certainly come in handy given recent severe storms within the country.
The UK government has worked with tech companies including Dell, Intel, NVIDIA, Mellanox Technologies and StackHPC in the past, particularly for the Cambridge Service for Data Driven Discovery, which is one of the most powerful academic supercomputers in the UK.
