An objective verification of NDFD forecasts for TCs affecting the study region has been completed. NDFD wind speed grids are available since they became operational in 2006. NDFD data is compared to H*Wind surface wind analysis provided by the Hurricane Research Division. Six storms were examined: Ernesto (2006), Gabrielle (2007), Cristobal (2008), Hanna (2008), Earl (2010), and Irene (2011). The plots have been posted to the following URL: www4.ncsu/~bptyner
If you have time, please review the plots and make notes of any interesting observations, conclusions, or any other information that you feel is important. Send all comments to firstname.lastname@example.org so Bryce can compile the comments and incorporate them into the final report. Also, if there are additional plots or normalization methods you wish to see, please contact Bryce and he will be sure to add the additional plots.
