Subseasonal Forecasts

CFAN's subseasonal forecasting solution (weeks 3 and 4) can help decision makers separate persisting weather patterns versus changeable ones.


CFAN’s seasonal forecast product is based on both ECMWF and NOAA’s CFS model:

• Forecasts are provided twice weekly (Tuesday and Friday)

• U.S. maps of 5 day surface temperature anomalies

• Probabilities of heat waves and cold outbreaks for key energy markets

• NH maps of upper air geopotential height and 5 day temperature anomalies

• Forecasts of 8 NH teleconnection patterns

CFAN’s subseasonal forecast products are being actively improved on the auspices of a SBIR grant from NOAA [link].
