SCORING ALGORITHM FOR WEATHER VERIFICATION
Mine-Weather is an analytical database and visualization system designed to allow companies to probe the accuracy of the weather forecasts they use to plan their activities and preparedness in the case of storm conditions. The Mine-Weather system was recently built and is now in use at a large electric utility in the North Eastern US. The system comprises an analytical database and visualization dashboard and is used for probing the accuracy of weather forecasts.
The goal of mine-weather is to provide analysts with a flexible analytical platform for verifying and comparing the accuracy of weather forecasts under a variety of different weather conditions.
There are well established methods in the statistical forecasting literature on validating forecast performance. Our objective in Mine-Weather is to make weather forecast verification easy to understand and evaluate for decision makers.Download the white paper to learn more about the scoring models used in weather forecast data verification.
