Abstract : Forecast discussion bulletins should play an important part in your Local Analysis and Forecast Program (LAFP). In addition to providing a wealth of information, they are an excellent training tool. The discussions can quickly bring you up to speed on a developing situation, offer insight on a parameter you may have overlooked, introduce you to a new forecasting technique, or simply keep you from straying too far off the path. Remember, even though these discussions are just another forecaster's opinion, they are still a valuable source of information. This FYI lists some of the discussion bulletins currently available and suggests how to include them in your forecast process.
