Re: HUR IRMA Lounge


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.

Good advice for the general public and a nice summary of the models...I sometimes forget which is which. But around her if you hang long enough it will become apparent which ones to watch and which to ignore. I have known to disregard the Clip and most BAM (now TAB) models for a long time as well as the XTRP. His complaint about being 12 hours old JUST refers to those that were posted by silver. Here (and at Skeetobite) we get them much sooner than 12 hours, but you also have to watch when it was run. Knowledge and experience will help folks wade through the spaghetti!
