For example, if I say for you to assume that it is going to rain in your area, and I base that assumption that it is 80% likely based on the empirical forecasts in your area, then this is an epistemic assumption.

Note: empirical is closely related to epistemic. Epistemic is basically the type of reasoning, and empirical is basically the support of that kind of reasoning.
