Short summary
We present a forecasting system comprising additively set-up conceptual and simple error model. Parameters of the conceptual model were left unaltered, as are in most operational set-ups, and the data-driven model was arranged to forecast the corrective measures the conceptual model needs. We demonstrate that the present procedure could effectively improve forecast accuracy over extended lead times with a reliability degree varying inter-annually and inter-seasonally.
