Intelligent weather forecasting will be a big supporter in advancing meteorological modernization and improving forecasting accuracy.

After listening to a report on the design, application, and plan of intelligent weather forecast from National Meteorological Center, Mrs. Jiao Meiyan, Deputy Administrator of CMA (China Meteorological Administration), said that to harness the power of intelligent weather forecasting, we have to develop a sharp sense of smell for new technologies and methods. In addition, the development of intelligent weather forecasting can not go far without the involvement of talented persons. As a result, we should make a stronger connection with other organizations, institutions, and companies to broaden the talent pool.

Intelligent weather forecast is expected to release forecasters from a large amount of repeated work through the wise use of numerical prediction, big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. The taxing “manual labor” will hand over to the computer and predictors will have more time to develop algorithm as well as analyze and interpret objective forecast products. Chinese intelligent weather forecast system which developed by National Meteorological Center has been running steadly and effciently since its formal operation on May 8. It played significant role in several severe rain forecasts from May to July. (July 17)
