The weather is evolving and changeable. Limited by fundamental scientific laws, it is inherently impossible, even with the aid of latest technologies e.g. high-performance computers and weather satellites, to perfectly predict the future state of the atmosphere. As “chaos theory” and the “butterfly effect” loom large, novel ideas and innovative techniques will be essential in formulating the “accurate” weather forecast. This talk reviews the development and challenges of the modern weather forecast, as well as the scientific community’s latest responses to forecast uncertainties.
