Errors in prognostic winds at standard pressure levels from 700 to 100 mb are investigated. Errors resulting from the use of conventional forecasting techniques (excluding Numerical Weather Prediction), persistence and climatology are compared and inherent errors due to operational techniques are discussed. Both published and manuscript data from American and British sources are used.
