Modelling forecast uncertainty is a difficult task in any forecasting problem. In weather forecasting a possible solution is the use of forecast ensembles, which are obtained from multiple runs of numerical weather prediction models with various initial conditions and model parametrizations to provide information about the expected uncertainty. Currently all major meteorological centres issue forecasts using their operational ensemble prediction systems. However, it is a general problem that… 
Comparison of the BMA and EMOS statistical methods for probabilistic quantitative precipitation forecasting
The main approach to probabilistic weather forecasting has been the use of ensemble forecasting. In ensemble forecasting, the probability information is generally derived by using several numerical
Using the Residual Network Module to Correct the Sub-Seasonal High Temperature Forecast
It is concluded that the residual network has a sharper insight into the high temperature in sub-seasonal high temperature forecasting compared to traditional methods and convolutional networks, thus enabling more effective early warnings of extreme high temperature weather.
Calibrated ensemble forecasts of the height of new snow using quantile regression forests and Ensemble Model Output Statistics
Abstract. Height of new snow (HN) forecasts help to prevent critical failures of infrastructures in mountain areas, e.g. transport networks, ski resorts. The French national meteorological service,
Post-processing methods for calibrating the wind speed forecasts in central regions of Chile
In this paper we propose some parametric and non-parametric post-processing methods for calibrating wind speed forecasts of nine Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) models for locations around the
Operational statistical postprocessing of temperature ensemble forecasts with station‐specific predictors
A proper account for forecast uncertainty is crucial in operational weather services and weather‐related decision‐making. Ensemble forecasts provide such information. However, they may be biased and
Intercomparison of multiple statistical methods in post‐processing ensemble precipitation and temperature forecasts
Ensemble weather forecasting generally suffers from bias and under‐dispersion, which limit its predictive power. Several post‐processing methods have been developed to overcome these limitations, and


Probabilistic temperature forecasting with statistical calibration in Hungary
Bayesian model averaging (BMA) is applied for calibrating ensembles of temperature forecasts produced by the operational limited area model ensemble prediction system of the Hungarian Meteorological Service and it is shown that BMA post-processing significantly improves calibration and probabilistic forecasts although the accuracy of point forecasts is rather unchanged.
Similarity‐based semilocal estimation of post‐processing models
Weather forecasts are typically given in the form of forecast ensembles obtained from multiple runs of numerical weather prediction models with varying initial conditions and physics
Probabilistic forecasts of wind speed: ensemble model output statistics by using heteroscedastic censored regression
A novel way of statistically post-processing dynamical ensembles for wind speed by using heteroscedastic censored (tobit) regression, where location and spread derive from the ensemble, which results in a substantial improvement over the unprocessed ensemble or climatological reference forecasts.

A Comparison of the ECMWF, MSC, and NCEP Global Ensemble Prediction Systems
Abstract The present paper summarizes the methodologies used at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC), and the National Centers
Log‐normal distribution based Ensemble Model Output Statistics models for probabilistic wind‐speed forecasting
Ensembles of forecasts are obtained from multiple runs of numerical weather forecasting models with different initial conditions and typically employed to account for forecast uncertainties. However,
Spatially adaptive, Bayesian estimation for probabilistic temperature forecasts
Uncertainty in the prediction of future weather is commonly assessed through the use of forecast ensembles that employ a numerical weather prediction model in distinct variants. Statistical
A comparison of ensemble post‐processing methods for extreme events
It is shown how flexible biascorrection schemes can be incorporated into these post-processing methods, and that allowing the bias correction to depend on the ensemble mean can yield considerable improvements in skill when forecasting extreme events.
