Forecast Period

Definition

This plot shows how the coefficient of correlation between GFS forecast precipitation and observed precipitation varies during the year, depending on the event being forecast. This plot was constructed for each of the 24 selected MOPEX basins. Separate correlation plots were made for precipitation, tmin and tmaax.
