weather forecast

An assessment of the future state of the atmosphere with respect to precipitation, clouds, winds, and temperature.

Such assessments are usually made by government or private meteorologists, often using numerical simulations. Such simulations are the result of representing the atmosphere mathematically as a fluid in motion.
