Re: Irene Forecast Lounge

Like ED said somewhere, a model is not the forecast, it is an aid to assist in developing the forecast. My question was not about the accuracy of any model, but rather what is it that that leads to the GFDL jog? I am just curious as the jog is quite noticeable and appears unique to GDFL and has persisted over several runs. Does the underlying global atmospheric model used in GFDL suggest something that others do not, or is it maybe that GFDL has trouble when tracks run over or near land, or whatever?
