  • Abstract:

    Despite the existence of several weather studies in the tourism literature, there remain some gaps in knowledge. Uncertainty about weather conditions persists despite the impressive improvements in modern forecasting techniques. This study is a first attempt to investigate how weather uncertainty affects tourism demand. The findings indicate that the impact of weather on tourism demand is likely to grow with the increasingly "uncertain" nature of weather with regard, for example, to temperature and rain.
