Earth's weather and climate are, quite obviously, influenced crucially by the aerothermodynamic effects of moist air. At the same time, the determination of cloud and precipitation statistics and the prediction of clouds and precipitation remain the single most challenging and largely open issues in climate modelling and weather forecasting, respectively, today.
Recent years have seen re-invigorated interdisciplinary research efforts, shared between meteorologists, climate researchers, and applied mathematicians, aiming to push the frontier in this area. The time seems right to review recent achievements and to stake out remaining open issues and potential future paths of research in a special issue of "Mathematics of Climate and Weather Forecasting”.


 The contributions to this issue span the range from most recent developments for moist process modelling in next generation weather forecasting and climate models, covering both numerical methods and unresolved-scale physics modelling, via formal asymptotic analyses of multiscale moist processes to rigorous mathematical results on the partial differential equations of moist aerothermodynamics.
