To create uniquely accurate seasonal outlooks for highly granular locations, CustomWeather incorporates data from both NCEP (NOAA) and the Climate Forecast System model. The data is incorporated with CustomWeather’s forecast for conditions that produce the best snow for skiing relative to normal. This includes targeting certain patterns that affect long range weather (El Nino-La Nina is one of the better known cycles). CustomWeather’s long range weather models take numerous additional weather oscillations and teleconnections into account to anticipate seasonal weather.
