How do meteorologists forecast the weather?

Meteorologists are able to predict the changes in weather patterns by using several different tools. For example, weather balloons are special balloons that have a weather pack on them that measures temperature, air pressure, wind speed, and wind direction in all the layers of the troposphere.

What are the weather forecasting models?

NWP focuses on taking current observations of weather and processing these data with computer models to forecast the future state of weather. GEFS is a global-coverage weather forecast model made up of 21 separate forecasts, or ensemble members, used to quantify the amount of uncertainty in a forecast.
