Hi, I am forecasting weekly data, meaning seasonal_length = 52. Meanwhile, I am getting the error message as NameError: name 'warnings' is not defined. The detailed message shows 'warnings.warn("I can't handle data with frequency greater than 24. ""Seasonality will be ignored."' I also tried to simply remove the season_length argument. It won't give me error, but I got consistant forecast result. I am wondering how can I run forecasting with greater than 24 frequency while not getting this error message. thanks!

Hi Tia, For the time being, the AutoArima and ETS only work with time series that have a frequency of 24 or less, thus excluding the weekly time series. This is how Rob Hyndman's 'forecast' R package works. We'll currently working on adding greater frequencies, and we'll let you know once this functionality is ready.
