Dataset used for the evaluation of a new multi-layer snow scheme developed for the ECMWF Integrated Forecasting System (IFS). The dataset includes offline experiments to be compared with in situ observations and time-series and statistics of different quantities (snow depth, 2-metre temperature, cloud cover etc.) used to evaluate the impact on coupled land-atmosphere weather forecasts, as reported in the manuscript "Impact of a multi-layer snow scheme on near-surface weather forecasts" by Arduini et al. (2019).
