Long-range predictions are unlike weather forecasts for the next few days. The nature of our atmosphere means it is not possible to predict the weather on a particular day months to years ahead. At this range we have to acknowledge that many outcomes remain.

Routine evaluation of forecast performance provides essential feedback to both users and model developers on the quality of the forecasting system. ECMWF maintains a comprehensive range of verification statistics to evaluate the accuracy of its forecasts. Regular monitoring of the forecast skill is complemented with more in-depth diagnosis to provide a comprehensive.
