Re: Tropical Storm Laura Lounge


As Philippe Papin, Atmospheric Scientist at NWS NCEP Environmental Modeling Center, noted on Twitter earlier this morning, "Every single deterministic model has taken #Laura too far N at lead times +24h-120h. UKMET has performed best w/ track, but even it is slightly N of verification."

The error in track guidance has been pretty large with Laura, even the 3 day cone which is normally trustworthy has been too far north especially if you go by the center line (which you shouldn't). However as a hurricane with clearly defined center (with an eye at some point) and what I assume will be more recon and upper air flights the forecast should improve as they focus on a TX landfall.
