Radar data have exciting potential for improving forecasts from operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) models in Europe. The COST Action 717 entitled 'Use of radar observations in hydrological and NWP models' offers a framework in which European radar and NWP scientists, along with those from the hydrological community, can work together to realise this potential. COST-717 is divided into three working groups. The third is entitled 'Using radar information for assimilation into atmospheric models'. This review by members of Working Group 3 seeks to inform the radar and NWP communities about each other’s disciplines and provide an accessible introduction to the literature for those working at the intersection of these fields.
