When it comes time for adventure and fun, many people plan their activities around their schedule and the weather. As weather can be projected 7-10 days in advance, folks will consult their favorite weather forecast source to find out if the conditions will be favorable for their preferred outdoor activity. There are many factors that come into play when predicting the temperatures, winds, and rains. We at Gemini Sailing Tours would like expound on weather forecasting to help you schedule your next adventure with us.
Weather Forecasting Methods
For starters, weather forecasting is the application of current technology as well as science to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time and a given location. By collecting as much data regarding the current state of the atmosphere, particularly the temperature, humidity, and wind, and applying the understanding of atmospheric processes, through meteorology, one can determine how the atmosphere evolves in the future to make the weather forecasts. However, the forecasts become less accurate as the range of the forecast increases because of the chaotic nature of the atmosphere and incomplete understanding of the processes.
How Do Meteorologists Predict the Temperature?
Collected routinely from trained observers, automatic weather stations or buoys, traditional observations made at the surface of atmospheric pressure, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity, and precipitation are all taken into account. Information gained from the observations during the data assimilation process is used in conjunction with a numerical model’s most recent forecast for the time that observations were made to produce the meteorological analysis. Computer simulations of the atmosphere are derived from numerical weather prediction models. Using understanding of physics and fluid dynamics, experts take the analysis as the starting point and evolve the state of the atmosphere forward in time. Requiring supercomputers to solve the complicated equations which govern how the state of a fluid changes, the output from the model provides the basis of the weather forecast.
Pacific Ocean Weather Forecast
When it comes to predicting the weather forecast on the ocean, the variables increase, which makes accuracy not as great under other circumstances. The clouds, humidity levels, and winds are important factors. With the help of advanced equipment and satellites, professionals can predict what the weather will be for your next boat tour, but while out on the sea, you can learn how to gauge the oncoming weather by the clouds, winds, pressure changes, smells, and animal behaviors.
