# Plot observations along with median, 10th and 90th percentile forecasts.

### Description

Computes the median, 10th and 90th percentile forecasts, and plots the corresponding observations.

### Usage

1 | ```
verifPlot( fit, ensembleData, dates = NULL)
``` |

### Arguments

`fit` |
A model fit to ensemble forecasting data. |

`ensembleData` |
An |

`dates` |
The dates for which the CDF will be computed.
These dates must be consistent with |

### Value

A matrix giving the median, 10th and 90th percentile forecasts for the ensemble data at the specified dates. If observations are available, they are plotted along with the forecasts in order of increasing 90th percentile forecast.
