How are Forecasts Predicted?

No wizard and glass ball here folks. There are still a lot of cool equipment and techniques, though!

Meteorologists use several different tools and methods to predict changes in weather patterns. Some examples of this are using years and years of past data combined with live current conditions to anticipate what the future may hold!

There are tools from thermometers, barometers, and anemometers for measuring everything from temperature, air pressure and wind speed. Satellites support analyzing weather patterns and weather balloons are released to learn more about atmospheric characteristics as well!

Always remember, the weather forecast is simply an educated guess! As new tools and more data are compiled we get better at forecasting.
