Welcome to PyCPT for Subseasonal Forecasts! The goal of this tutorial is to learn how to configure and run PyCPT in order to calibrate subseasonal forecasts from the NOAA SubX and WWRP/WCRP S2S project databases, and eventually to construct multimodel forecasts.

We will focus on SubX because the forecasts are available publicly in real time. The ECMWF model—which is part of the S2S database—will also be covered since it’s part of the IRI ACToday project has access to the real-time forecasts as part of the S2S Real Time Pilot Initiative.

Who is this guide for?

Basic familiarity with CPT and with using PyCPT for seasonal forecasting is assumed, as is a basic familiarity with subseasonal forecasting.
