Abstract: Weather-based contingent claims typically rely on a cumulative index of the weather variable. Frequently, the index is weighted to reflect the importance of timing in a weather-production relationship. This article reviews alternative optimization methods and apply criteria for selecting among them to obtain an optimal and robust distribution of weights.
