Unrivaled Accuracy

Correcting the most common errors in weather forecasting

The ability to predict the future sounds more like the plot of a movie than something based on reality. Yet through more than a century of advances in our knowledge of how weather works, applied mathematics, and ever-increasing computational power, humanity can do just that: predict the future.

Unfortunately, this is only true for systems that follow the laws of physics (sorry, stock market!), but if you consider it, weather forecasting is one of humanity’s most outstanding achievements.
