Assessing a suite of AI weather forecast models

Started June 27, 2023

Abstract or project description

From his abstract: Currently, weather forecasting is done primarily using traditional computer models. Artificial intelligence (AI) would allow predictions to be made much more easily with far less effort. However, AI weather models are still less accurate than traditional computer models. The goal of this project is to explore the possibility of using artificial intelligence in forecasting and to gain an understanding of its potential and limitations while creating an accurate weather forecast. The models use a 70 MB dataset that is in json format. The dataset includes a variety of factors including min and max temperature, wind speed and direction, air pressure, and precipitation every day over the span of over 50 years. This project aims to use a wide variety of regression models to forecast the next day’s temperature for Roseville, CA.
