This preliminary study aims at evaluating the forecast skill of Météo-France NWP models operationally run during the AMMA SOP in 2006. The global models (~50 km) performed better than ALADIN LAM model at higher resolution (10 km) specifically deployed during the 4 months of the SOP. A specific problem is the increase of total precipitation with the resolution. CRM AROME model (2.5 km) improves the distribution and timing of precipitation, except for intense rain events (>20mm/day) that are too frequent.
