Quick Reference

A method of forecasting based on finding past occasions that are analogous to the current synoptic situation, and also on the assumption that the weather will subsequently develop in a similar way. For various reasons, including those advanced by chaos theory, such forecasting has limited success.

Subjects: Meteorology and Climatology.
