Abstract : Real time temperature forecasts are being prepared at the CMC for a set of ninety eight Canadian stations twice daily. Using radat data and baroclinic progs as well as surface synoptic data, maximum and minimum temperature forecasts are being made for the next two days. Evaluation of verifications is made for the period May 1971 to April 1972. Shortcomings in this statistical approach to temperature forecasting are discussed and modifications are proposed.
