Great article but it unfortunately doesn't account for a lot of the physics that go into weather prediction:( that's what I'm hoping for soon (and trying to go to grad school / phd programs for). You can only do so much (right now!!) with ML, NNs, and regression when it comes to weather prediction as, again, you're lacking a lot of the physics in those models.
Researchers with Google have published a research paper detailing the machine learning technology behind their newly developed'nowcast' capabilities. The tech works to predict the weather for the immediate future -- as soon as a single hour in the future, according to the study -- so that people know what to expect and how to arrange their plans. Google claims this technology can make accurate predictions in only minutes. A nowcast, as you may have guessed, is a term being used to refer to a forecast for the current moment or the very near future. Predicting the weather for these future moments is tricky, but can greatly help both individuals and societies, making it possible to plan one's outdoor run, arrange outdoor construction projects around the weather, and more.
There has been a furor over metrological activity over the U.S. for the past three months. Hurricanes have ravaged several areas along the U.S coastline. Several satellites are in place to track weather patterns in our atmosphere. Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, NOAA's GOES-East satellite showed two storm systems for pre-Thanksgiving travelers Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017. One system was exiting the northeastern U.S. while the other was affecting the Pacific Northwest.
