Cloud nowcasting progress

Some recent progress on nowcasting (predicting over the next few hours) the locations of clouds: Berthomier et al. (2020) compared the effectiveness of several deep learning models for the task, and Jack Kelly of Open Climate Fix open-sourced a Python notebook that approaches the same problem using optimal flow. This work is a step towards improving predictions of solar panels’ power output, an important task for operators as an increasing fraction of the electricity supply on their grids transitions to solar.
