Forecast (vi/vt)

Here is a context clues on the verb forecast, which is used transitively and intransitively. As a transitive verb, it means “to calculate or predict (some future event or condition) usually as a result of study and analysis of available pertinent data; especially: to predict (weather conditions) on the basis of correlated meteorological observations”  and “to indicate as likely to occur.” Used intransitively, forecast means “to calculate the future.”

Don’t forget that forecast is also used as a noun. Should you decide you want to recast this worksheet (it’s formatted, like just about everything else on this blog, in Microsoft Word, so you can alter it to suit your students’ needs) to reflect this word’s meaning as a noun, in that usage forecast means “a prophecy, estimate, or prediction of a future happening or condition.”
