Abstract: The area of deep learning has enjoyed a resurgence on its peak, in almost every field of interest. Weather forecasting is a complicated and one of the most challenging tasks that includes observing and processing huge amount of data. The present paper proposes an effort to apply deep learning approach for the prediction of weather parameters such as temperature, pressure and humidity of a particular site. The implemented predictive models are based on Deep Belief Network (DBN) and Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM). Initially, each model is trained layer by layer in an unsupervised manner to learn the non-linear hierarchical features from the input distribution of dataset. Subsequently, each model is re-trained globally in supervised manner with an output layer to predict the appropriate output. The obtained results are encouraging. It is found that the feature based forecasting model can make predictions with high degree of accuracy. This implies that the model can be suitably adapted for making longer forecasts over larger geographical areas.
