Walmart operates thousands of stores in the U.S. and internationally with varying inventory and climates. During different weather conditions, demand for some products may increase or decrease, like umbrellas before a rainstorm. Since it is important for stores to not overstock or be out-of-stock of inventory, knowing how different weather conditions affect these weather-sensitive items would be vital for Walmart. This report details the process of data management, exploratory data analysis, modeling, and findings done on Walmart weather-sensitive sales.
