What is forensic meteorology?

Forensic meteorology is the determination of past weather conditions at a particular location, through the study of archived weather observations, radar and satellite data, and official forecast products. Many times, insurance claims and court proceedings hinge on the exact weather conditions at the time and place an incident occurred, including cases of determination of fault in an accident or cause of damage to property.
