Abstract:

A simple model is constructed to demonstrate the influence of weather forecasts on operational decisions. The model indicates that the present forecasting capability can reduce the number of futile attempts to destroy targets, with only a slight cost in time to accomplish the objective. Some implications are given for optimizing the method of presenting weather forecasts.
