Weather and Forecasting moves to monthly publication schedule in 2022
AMS Publications is happy to announce that Weather and Forecasting (WAF), now entering its 37th year as one of AMS’s leading journals, will be moving to a monthly publication schedule starting with the January 2022 issue.
Founded in 1986, WAF was published quarterly until moving to a six-issue-per-year bimonthly journal in 1999. Its progress to a monthly publication reflects the growing page count and popularity it enjoys, and is a testament to its enduring value to the research and operational forecasting community.
