Weather Tidbits: Climatology Forecast
The 2nd type of forecasting or climatology is explored in this Weather Tidbits. A climatology forecast involves the average weather to make a forecast. Climatology works well for long-term (seasonal) forecasting but not so well for day-to-day forecasting. However, it can provide a reasonable first guess to a forecast. There are times when both climatology and persistence can be combined to make a forecast.
