Weather forecasts, based on observation and mathematical modelshelp predict the state of the atmosphere at a given time and location based on various relationships such as temperature, humidity, pressure, precipitation, or wind.
Weather forecasts are practices that have been carried out for hundreds of years, even before the Christian era, basing themselves basically on the observation of cloud patterns, the wind, the time of year, although initially these they were inaccurate.
It was not until the arrival of new technologies (such as computers) that mathematical models began to be put into operation that made it possible to achieve more accurate predictions, becoming a fundamental factor for the transportation (land, sea or air), agriculture, tourism, disaster prevention, public health and even military operationsthis beyond deciding whether or not to carry an umbrella or what outfits to put on.
