Synonyms of "Predict" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between predict and forecast ?
A: Mostly the same. I only see forecast used for weather in day to day use. For other things, predict is more natural.

forecast can be used as noun and verb:
The weather forecast
To forecast the weather

predict is only a verb
prediction is its noun

To predict the future
A prediction for the future

Q: What is the difference between predict and anticipate ?
A: Very very close in meaning. I think in many cases they can be used similarly, like "I predict that they're going to break up soon" or "I'm anticipating a breakup with those two". However, anticipate feels more like a feeling, like a short term premonition. You could say "I'm anticipating a raise at work pretty soon" but you couldn't really say that about a far off thing like that you will get married someday.
Q: What is the difference between predict and foretell and prophesy ?
A: Predicting involves using current knowledge to make guesses about what's about to happen. For example, if someone's a good runner, you'd predict he'll win the next race.

Prophecy tends to involve divine inspiration, or at least appearance of it. Foretelling is similar.
Q: What is the difference between predict and anticipate ?
A: They're basically the same, and are interchangeable in most cases. Anticipate sounds slightly more sure than predict, like you have some information that makes the anticipated outcome more likely. Predict sounds like you believe that something will be the case, but you aren't as certain.

Also, anticipate sounds like something in the near future while predict sounds more like something a long time from now.
Q: What is the difference between predict and forecast ?
A: "Predict" is more general

"I predict that he will lose his job"

"Forecast" is usually just for money and weather

"The weatherman forecasts a rainy weekend"

"The company's sales forecast looks great"
