The Hail Forecasting Challenge Summarized
Weather forecasting is a complex and often challenging skill that involves observing and processing vast amounts of data. Forecasting companies and websites can show users 7-day forecasts with up to 80% accuracy. However, it is not that easy with every kind of weather condition.
There’s typically no clear distinction between storms that do and do not produce hailstones. So, it is challenging to warn people about hailstorms that might destroy lots of homes, cars, and crops.
