What makes our accurate forecasts possible?

New ways of collecting, measuring and interpreting data have helped us to correctly forecast the Island’s complicated weather patterns in 2018. 

Increased observational coverage of the atmosphere over the ocean to the south and west of the Island has improved by increasing the quality and quantity of observations from ships, aircraft, buoys, radar and satellites. Developments in our science over many years, investment in our new supercomputer and continually refining our computer models used in forecasting further increase the accuracy and reliability of our forecasts.

In summary, advances in science, technology, communication and platforms, and working with partners all contribute to being able to make forecasts that were previously impossible.

Without our warnings, the threat to public safety and damage to the Island’s economy and infrastructure could have been a lot worse after the Summer of 2018
