NOAA begins transition of powerful new tool to improve hurricane forecasts

Superior physics will help revolutionize numerical weather prediction

NOAA will begin using its newest weather prediction tool -- the dynamic core, Finite-Volume on a Cubed-Sphere (FV3), to provide high quality guidance to NOAA’s National Hurricane Center through the 2017 hurricane season.

NOAA First: Real-time data from Global Hawk included in hurricane forecast model

Weather information taken from Tropical Storm Erika used in operational forecast model

For the first time, real-time weather data taken by the NOAA-operated unmanned NASA Global Hawk aircraft went directly into one of NOAA’s operational hurricane forecast models to assist in the forecast of Tropical Storm Erika.

NOAA invests $1.3 million with university and federal researchers for hurricane forecasting advances

NOAA’s Office of Weather and Air Quality has funded seven multi-year proposals totaling $1.3 million this year for university partners and federal scientists to more rapidly and smoothly transfer new technology, research results, and observational advances through NOAA’s Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT) to operational hurricane forecasting.

NOAA releases unmanned aircraft inside Hurricane Edouard

Scientists aboard NOAA Hurricane Hunter launch Coyote unmanned planes to collect data near ocean surface

NOAA hurricane hunters entered a new chapter in the use of unmanned aircraft systems today when scientists aboard the aircraft launched unmanned aircraft directly into Hurricane Edouard. The Coyote unmanned aircraft is the first unmanned aircraft deployed directly inside a hurricane from NOAA hurricane hunter aircraft. The goal of the Coyote is to collect temperature, pressure and wind observations below 3,000 feet, where manned aircraft cannot fly safely.
NOAA researchers will use 2015 season to improve hurricane track and intensity forecasts
