The word nowcast is invented just for this system. As you might have guessed, it is the combination of “now” and “forecast,” meaning to predict the immediate weather or what is going to happen in the near future. The task is not easy but the information it provides will help tremendously with people’s rearranging outdoor construction projects and the like.

On its AI post, Google talked about how it uses machine learning to develop nowcast. The post focuses on physics-free and localized predictions. Nowcast’s range is from zero to as much as six hours in the future.

The machine learning system of Google’s team is able to provide an accurate prediction after only five to ten minutes, and all of the data is of a high resolution.

The system is still in its early stage of development but initial tests have shown that it is better than several of its counterparts when it comes to accuracy.
