METEO 410 Portfolio #3:
Forecast Analysis for Tucson, Arizona, Atlantic City, New Jersey and Rapid City, South Dakota
In the following sections I will discuss the climatology for Tucson, Arizona, Atlantic City, New Jersey and Rapid City, South Dakota which were the final three of five cities in the National Weather Challenge Forecasting Contest.
I will also take a closer look at three specific forecasts, one for each location, that did not turn out as expected or were accurate, and analyze why this possibly occurred and how I learned from the process to improve my forecasting skills.
The last area will deal with specific strategies that I've noticed myself following over the last several weeks and how I plan to either continue to apply these or modify them to improve my skills as a forecaster.
So without any further delay, please choose a section below that interests you, either the climatology, forecast analysis and critiques themselves, or my reflections on my habits and strategies to improve my forecasting. Simply select the link below and you will proceed to that section.
