extrapolation

The extension of a relationship between two or more variables beyond the range covered by knowledge, or the calculation of a value outside that range.

In synoptic meteorology, extrapolation commonly refers to the forecasting of the position of a weather-pattern feature based solely upon recent past motion of that feature.
Compare interpolation.
