As Time Goes By in Weather Forecasting: Task

Thank you for accepting this mission. Your courage and bravery is not going unnoticed.

Your mission is to discover how weather forecast accuracy and bias change with time. More specifically, you will find out how many days into the future a weather forecast can be trusted. To do so, you will use the web to collect forecasts made by television stations, newspapers, and governmental agencies.

After collecting the forecasts, and checking for accuracy and bias, your group will examine your data and draw conclusions. To help relay your results to the public, two graphs will be needed to accompany your data & conclusions. For a more in-depth explanation, go to the “Process” page.

Remember, do not mention your ties to The Society. As long as you follow that rule, you will remain under our protection and be safe from the EWFO.
