Not sure where to put this, but Eric Berger at Ars Technica just published a nice article about the various hurricane models often seen in spaghetti plots. He gives a good one sentence summary of each of the models.
Please, please stop sharing spaghetti plots of hurricane models. All forecast models are not created equal.

I have to disagree. The spaghetti plots are fine if one knows how to use them. There isn't any such thing as too much information. It's great for a quick view of what all the models are doing, especially watching the trends over time. It would be ridiculous to base an exact forecast on them. It is also ridiculous to say that information should not be shared. Educate people, don't suppress information.
