Recent developments in six areas of statistical meteorology are described and the importance of interdisciplinary research in these areas is indicated. The areas are stochastic-dynamic prediction, assimilation of observed data, time-series analysis, statistical weather forecasting, probability forecasting, and precipitation modification statistics. Several problems are identified within each area and the need for further interdisciplinary research to solve these problems is emphasized.
