Two models of neural network (NN), namely a feed forward neural network (FFNN) and time delay neural network (TDNN) were proposed to model and predict daily rainfall in Central Java, Indonesia. TDNN used in this paper is feed forward networks with finite impulse response (FIR) filter on the input layer and hidden layer. There are some indicators which are frequently used to measure the accuracy of goodness of fit model and forecasting. Those indicators are mean square error (MSE) and Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC). Those two models would be applied to daily rainfall data at three locations: Napen, Pabelan and Klaten station. Data are split into two parts, namely training and testing data. The result shows that TDNN has better performance, due to its fewer parameters and prediction accuracy, than FFNN.
