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
