Most of tragic landslides are caused by heavy rainfall. Reliable rainfall prediction is thus invaluable for early warning. This paper describes a recent development of our next generation numerical weather prediction model-the Multi-Scale Simulator for the Geoenvironment (MSSG)-after introducing general information about numerical weather prediction models. The MSSG can be categorized as a global cloud-resolving model that can be used for global simulation with high-resolutions without the aid of cumulus parameterization. MSSG is thus expected to have a good skill for local rainfall prediction as well as for long-term prediction. This paper also shows a couple of examples that show a good prediction skill of MSSG and a powerful physics scheme implemented in MSSG for the research on local rainfalls.
