Numerical weather predication (Atmospheric Models):
  • Using current and past observations to predicate weather in near future
  • Equations describe how atmospheric temperature, pressure, winds, and moisture change with time. The models are programmed into the computer.
Prognostic Chart (Prog):
  • The final forecast chart representing the atmosphere at a specified future time. A forecaster uses the Prognostic Charts as a guide to predicting the weather. A good forecaster needs to know model limitations: A personalized practical interpretation of model outputs local geographic features.
