Effects of Temperature Advection
on forecasted temperatures
When forecasting temperatures, look at the temperatures upstream from the
station for which you making a forecast.
If they are warmer,
that means warmer air is being transported towards your station and the
temperature should rise. Put in another way, if there is warm advection
occuring at a given station, expect the temperatures to increase.
In contrast, if cold advection is occurring at a given station,
expect the temperatures to drop.
Temperature advection refers to change in temperature caused by
movement of air by the wind.
Forecasting temperatures using advection involves looking at the wind
direction at your forecasting site and the temperatures
upstream (in the direction from which the wind is blowing).
