April Showers bring Word Powers in the forms of RAINFALL and SNOWFALL with these 3 letters: QPF
Put up your umbrellas, kids… because QPF is the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast. The QPF is the expected or predicted amount of precipitation for a specified region over a specified time period.
– QUANTITATIVE: Relating to, measuring, or measured by the quantity of something
– PRECIPITATION: Rain, snow, sleet, or hail that falls to the ground
– FORECAST : To estimate or calculate in advance, especially to predict weather conditions
The next time you listen to a weather forecast, be a bit of a meteorologist and look for the QPF.
