Weather forecasting involves prediction of atmospheric conditions at a specific time for the given location. Such forecasting systems require a combination of computer models, observations, and knowledge of historic weather trends and patterns. With the help of these methods, reasonable and accurate forecasts of weather conditions can be predicted.
Weather forecasting using a variety of instruments including thermometers for measuring temperature, barometers for measuring air pressure, rain gauge for measuring precipitation, and anemometer for measuring wind speed. Apart from these, weather satellites orbiting around the earth take snapshots of clouds to judge their movement. Weather radars are used for shooting radio signals into the clouds to determine rate of precipitation. These also ascertain its motion, and type; whether they are rain, snow, or hail clouds. Modern weather radars are mostly pulse-doppler radars that are capable of detecting the motion of rain droplets, in addition to the intensity of precipitation.
Meteorological and weather forecasting system can be classified by type as broadcasting system, information system, satellite receiving system, weather radars, and weather stations. Weather stations consist of weather measuring instruments that collect weather data. In airports, automated weather stations are used and in oceans weather buoys are used for collecting atmospheric data.
