Short summary
In its purest essence, numerical weather prediction boils down to solving the fundamental laws of nature with computers. Such fundamental laws are the conservation of energy and the conservation of mass. In this paper, a framework is presented that allows to respect these laws more accurately, which should lead to weather forecasts that correspond better to reality. Under specific circumstances, such as heavy precipitation, the proposed framework has a significant impact on the forecast.
