How is turbulence forecasted?

How do companies like Jeppesen formulate the turbulence forecast maps? Which data is taken into consideration and combined to obtain previews of such specific patterns?

Thank you in advance.

I would say mostly the jet stream, fronts, winds, high and low pressure areas, temperature gradients, that sort of thing.

This & plugging all the various data into computers they come up with a forecast. Now being anything but an it guy I make no claims to understand it ;)
