Click here to go straight to the real-time guidance The aims of this project are: (a) to foster increased development of forecast aids for global basins by engaging the wider community of operational centers, academic researchers, and commercial interests; and (b) to go beyond track and intensity both by encouraging the development of forecast aids for structure change and by providing structure data for use in track and intensity projection methods. To accomplish these aims, the project is organized around four main objectives: (1) to provide a global repository of tropical cyclone forecast aids for track and intensity information, (2) to provide real-time plots of these data for active tropical cyclones, and (3) to visualize structure and intensity parameters from observations taken by reconnaissance aircraft, (4) to provide retrospective plots of these data for past tropical cyclones.
Cyclone phase evolution: Analyses & Forecasts This page presents historical, analyzed (current), and model-forecast cyclone phase diagrams for northwestern hemisphere cyclones with the goals of improved structural forecasting, structural transition (subtropical/tropical/extratropical), cyclogenesis, and providing measures of structural predictability.
Experimental forecast Tropical Cyclone Genesis Potential Fields This page presents operational model fields that are being used in a study examining their forecast ability for tropical cyclogenesis in the eastern Pacific and northern Atlantic basins.
