ABSTRACT

The National Hurricane Center issues tropical cyclone (TC) analyses, forecasts, and warnings over large parts of the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and in support of many nearby countries. This talk provides an overview of the process, from observation to analysis to forecast to warning, focusing on the decisions and responsibilities of NHC’s Hurricane Specialists, the data and tools available to them, and how these products are communicated to users.
