    92 For each member, the daily predictions are averaged to obtain a single seasonal forecast (this yields a first warning, as in this example). For rectangular spatial domains (i.e., for grids), the spatial average is first computed (with a warning) to obtain a unique series for the whole domain, as in this example. The corresponding terciles for each ensemble member are then computed for the analysis period. Thus, data is converted to a series of tercile categories by considering values above, between or below the terciles of the whole period. The probability of a member to fall into the observed tercile is represented by the colorbar (different color palettes are available through the argument `color.pal`). For instance, probabilities below 1/3 are very low, indicating that a minority of the members falls in the tercile. Conversely, probabilities above 2/3 indicate a high level of member agreement (more than 66% of members falling in the same tercile). The observed terciles (the events that actually occurred) are represented by the white circles.

The corresponding terciles for each ensemble member are then computed for the analysis period. Thus, data is converted to a series of tercile categories by considering values above, between or below the terciles of the whole period. The probability of a member to fall into its respective climatological tercile is represented by the colorbar (different color palettes are available through the argument `color.pal`). For instance, probabilities below 1/3 are very low, indicating that a minority of the members falls in the tercile. Conversely, probabilities above 2/3 indicate a high level of member agreement (more than 66% of members falling in the same tercile).

    9494Finally, the ROC Skill Score (ROCSS) is indicated in the secondary (right) Y axis. For each tercile, it provides a quantitative measure of the forecast skill, and it is commonly used to evaluate the performance of probabilistic systems. The value of this score ranges from 1 (perfect forecast system) to -1 (perfectly bad forecast system). A value zero indicates no skill compared with a random prediction.

    100100In order to compare the predictions against the observations for every grid point these need to be in the same reference grid. We use the interpolation capabilities of `downscaleR` to this aim:
