Temperature forecasts underpin many of our public and commercial activities.
Most temperature forecasts issued to the public and to customers are automated. Improving on and providing the best automated temperature forecasts available is a key priority. Last year's BPM tracked the basic automated temperature forecasting capability over time, where a higher score shows that forecasts are getting more accurate. We expect the day 1 temperature forecasts to be more accurate than for day 2, so the rules are stricter for day 1.
