Short term traffic prediction is essential in the modern intelligent transportation systems. Numerous algorithms were developed for time serious traffic prediction. Long short term memory network (LSTM) is a time serious prediction model which is able to integrate multiple variables such as flow, weather and precipitation. Most of the researches were carried out using the main source of data such as total flow or average speed to predict the vehicle congestion. Weather and rainfall are other factors which are gradually increase the traffic congestion in the crowded city. In this paper, LSTM network is proposed for multivariate analysis based traffic flow prediction. Traffic data contains noise and missing values due to device failures and communication problems. Missing data has been imputed and noise are removed using stacked denoise autoencoder (SDAE). Results are compared with LSTM based univariate analysis and convolutional neural network (CNN) based multivariate analysis. According to the results of LSTM based Multivariate (flow, weather, precipitation) approach without missing value reduces the RMSE error rate to 15.01 to predict the future congestion of a road.
