Met Eireann to publish Monthly Forecasts in 2020

https://www.independent.ie/irish-new...-38813055.html

Quote:
Met Éireann will examine publishing monthly forecasts on its website in 2020, according to its head of forecasting Evelyn Cusack.

"We don't have them on our website yet, because they are more experimental, but we may well publish them in 2020, but they are just a guide really," Ms Cusack told the Irish Independent.

At the moment, "we have a reasonable confidence in a 10-day outlook", she said.

"When I started forecasting in the 1980s, it was more like one or two days.

"There has been a quiet revolution in weather forecasting in the last 50 years due to the development of supercomputers," she added.

It will be interesting to see these forecasts being released and how they verify. I foresee another project for Syran!

Given what Cusack said about long range forecasts back in 2013 with this legendary weather bulletin, does this not seem a bit strange? You would think they would stay far away from this kind of "forecasting", even if it is a guide.

Not really sryanbruen,that was 7 years ago a lot has changed since then,
personally i would say its down to demand.The met office dropped long range forecasting only to reintroduced it because of demand.
I see you have to regasture to revise the forecast although its free,its a great opportunity to get revenue through advertisement.

I love that forecast by Miss Cusack but how can she suggest that the berries cannot predict the weather ahead and not be just a result of the weather previous.....lol

They should just get Tae laidir to do it for them.

Or Con Sensus. They are both pretty good.
