Trade Winds Long Range Weather Forecasting

Long Range Weather

Long range weather forecasting is our "forte" at Trade Winds. Each month our 16-24 page Trade Winds newsletter outlines our long-range (one- to as much as six-month) weather outlooks for many different areas of the world. These forecasts are written with the commodity trader in mind, but are excellent for anyone whose business or livelihood can be affected by long-term weather peculiarities.

We base our weather outlooks on analog year studies, the presence of La Niņa or El Niņo, our position in the sunspot cycle, the eruptions of volcanos...basically any factor that can play a role in changing long-term weather around the world. The fact that Trade Winds is now in its 15th year shows to great degree how accurate our weather forecasts have been through the years. Just a few notable accomplishments on our part would include...
