AI to forecast drought (3/10)

Short terms weather forecasts are really what is termed as ‘crapshoot’. 

The short term weather forecast or sub-seasonal ones instead rely on a lot of variables which would include the local meteorological factors, as well as the large global phenomena like El Nino.

Now researchers are using Machine Learning to get insights from the troves of historical weather and climate data, without which short term weather forecasts cannot be produced authentically.

“Weather patterns repeat throughout the seasons and from year to year and that therefore pattern recognition can and should inform longer-term forecasts.”
