NCEP NOTES A Consensus Forecast for Tropical Cyclone Gale Wind Radii


TheNational Hurricane Center (NHC) has been forecasting gale force wind radii for many years, andmore recently (starting in 2004) began routine postanalysis or ‘‘best tracking’’ of the maximum radial extent of gale [34 knots (kt; 1 kt 5 0.514m s)] force winds in compass quadrants surrounding the tropical cyclone (wind radii). At approximately the same time… (More)
