Weather Roulette is a framework for evaluating the performance of forecasts by translating the probabilities into effective daily interest rates (a measure used in finance to show the actual return from a particular interest rate). The exercise starts with an initial investment, such as one euro, and after every round of betting on the weather outcome, the total value (profit and initial value) is reinvested.
