An Unknown Future

Let's say that you're looking at the percentage chance of a 1-in-100 year extreme heatwave over Seattle, Washington.  You might have a bumpy time series of the historical risk, with lots of ups and downs.  And you want to know what will happen in the future, say, over the next several years.

A Simple Forecast of the Future


Basic Forecasts

The simplest way to project the risk over future years is to assume that it lies somewhere in the range of the recent historical observations.  This range is very large.



Trend-Based Forecasts

More sophisticated forecasts account for both the increase in risks due to climate change, in addition to the recent range of the historical data.  The forecast range is still generally large.
