Some typical cases of intelligent handling of weather forecasts such as translation, visualization, etc. are decomposed into two subprocesses ~ analysis and synthesis. Specific techniques are presented for analysis and synthesis of weather forecast texts as well as for generation of weather maps. These techniques deal with the weather forecasts at different levels ~ syntactic, discourse and semantic. They are based on a conceptual model underlying weather forecasts as well as on formal descriptions of the means of expression used in particular natural and cartographic sublanguages.
