## prediction function for fitted Holt-Winters models

### Description

Computes predictions and prediction intervals for models fitted by
the Holt-Winters method.

### Usage

## S3 method for class 'HoltWinters':
predict(object, n.ahead=1, prediction.interval = FALSE,
level = 0.95, ...)

### Arguments

`object` |
An object of class `HoltWinters` . |

`n.ahead` |
Number of future periods to predict. |

`prediction.interval` |
logical. If `TRUE` , the lower and
upper bounds of the corresponding prediction intervals are computed. |

`level` |
Confidence level for the prediction interval. |

`...` |
arguments passed to or from other methods. |

### Value

A time series of the predicted values. If prediction intervals are
requested, a multiple time series is returned with columns `fit`

,
`lwr`

and `upr`

for the predicted values and the lower and
upper bounds respectively.
