|Ensemble Forecasts for AL12|
|ECMWF Ensemble||GFS Ensemble|
NOTE on ECMWF Ensembles: These data are plotted directly as provided to the public by the ECMWF.
Their vortex tracker may have difficulties tracking TCs or Invests, particularly weaker storms or
Invests that do not yet have an easily-identified location. Also, members that contain TC formation
that occurs later in the forecast (after 24 h, for example) may not be depicted in these tracks.
| ||Weathernerds provides weather data in a flexible, practical interface. This site is designed to give creativity and control to the forecaster so that imagery is weather feature-based rather than relying on predefined geographic maps. Weather models available on the site include the ECMWF, GFS, HRRR, NAM, HWRF, and HMON. The interface allows users to create point soundings, cross sections, multiple field overlays, etc. Satellite data from GOES 16 also is provided in an interface that allows users to zoom in anywhere. During hurricane season, the TC Forecast Guidance section provides ensemble forecasts from the GFS and ECMWF. This guidance is useful for analyzing the range of possibilities for TC track and intensity in the long-range portion of the forecast.|| |
