Title :Minimum Temperature Forecasting at Naha, Okinawa by Statistical Techniques
Authors :Nakamura, Isao
Issue Date :30-Jun-1970
Abstract :Both a linear multiple regression method and a graphical method were tested to forecast the minimum temperature at Naha, Okinawa during the winter. The predictors, observed at 0900 local time of the previous day, were selected very carefully according to certain criteria. Due to the characteristic features of predominated northeast monsoon around Okinawa during the period, the predictors associated with large circulations were preferable to the local parameters themselves. Though the resultant prediction equation and prediction diagram showed no apparent difference of forecast accuracy, both were considerably better than the method of persistence. Large error-producing synoptic situations during the use of the methods were also revealed.
