This work describes the methods and procedures applied to improve the national flood warning system in Norway by including water level forecasts at non-gauged but important locations and information on the corresponding uncertainty. In this approach, only a subset of model variables (inputs) and parameters are treated as uncertain. It is found that visualization of the forecasts is challenging, and therefore a number of experimental solutions are discussed.
