Weather forecasting is the prediction of weather with the application of innovative technologies and sciences for a specific location. It also predicts various changes on the surface of the earth caused by atmospheric conditions, such as snow and ice cover, storm tides, and floods. It assists farmers in controlling the pests and other crop diseases to spread over the field by determining the accurate period for using specific pesticides. In addition, it helps reduce weather-related losses and enhances societal benefits, such as the protection of life and property and public health and safety. As a result, weather forecasting services are used in transportation, aviation, energy and utilities, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), agriculture, manufacturing, and retail sectors around the world.
