Weather Tidbits: Persistence Forecasting

This Weather Tidbits starts a miniseries on types of forecasting, with the 1st being persistence. A persistence forecast is a forecast that the future weather condition will be the same as the present condition. It can also be applied to assume that conditions from yesterday will be the same today. This forecast works well when weather patterns change minimally & weather features move very slowly, for a day or two.
