Predictability is intrinsic to a system, and the atmosphere most likely has predictability properties distinct from those of any model. This paper discusses three topics based on this definition of predictability. First, model error and initial-condition error are considered, given that unknowable predictability means the two may never be completely separated. Second, the implications of the choice of norms used to measure the results of previous predictability studies are outlined. Finally, the potential for generalization of concepts and results is highlighted.
