Paper on how the region near the ocean surface impacts hurricane forecasts released online in Monthly Weather Review

 Summary: Forecasters and researchers use the Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model to forecast where a hurricane will go, how strong it will be, how large it will be, and where the strongest winds are. This paper looks … Continue reading

Paper on a new way to run forecast models with multiple hurricanes at the same time published in Weather and Forecasting

Summary: HWRF is NOAA’s primary model for tropical cyclone (tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes) forecast. The distance between places where forecasts are made in the model (the grid resolution) must be small to make accurate forecasts. However, the amount … Continue reading
