Short- to long-term temperature forecasting system for the production, management and sale of energy resources


A method is described for the weather-climatic temperature forecasting, from short to long term, comprising the phases of acquiring meteorological parameters of a large-scale (sg) geographical area having a pre-determined amplitude; decomposing the large-scale geographical area (sg) into a base area and a regional area (sr); determining the temperature close to the surface of the base area, starting from the parameters available on the large-scale geographical area (sg), using an empirical-statistical model (statistical down-scaling); determining the tendencies of the meteorological parameters in the regional area (sr), starting from the meteorological parameters available on the large-scale geographical area (sg), using a dynamic numerical model (dynamic down-scaling); performing the combination (ensemble down-scaling), through an applicative model, of the empirical-statistical model (statistical down-scaling) and the dynamic numerical model (dynamic down-scaling) to obtain in continuous, from short term to seasonal term, the temperature forecast close to the surface. The applicative model adds a statistical scaling of the data for temperatures close to the surface which are therefore re-assimilated in the regional area (sr) as new temperature values close to the physical boundary of the regional area (sr), introducing, during the dynamic down-scaling phase, a range of pseudo-observations, which properly act on the regional area (sr).
