Caribbean hurricanes: changes of intensity and track prediction
Description: The meteorological conditions of hurricanes passing near Puerto Rico (18N, 68W) are analyzed using composite daily reanalysis and satellite data. Numerical model 48-h forecasts of Caribbean hurricane tracks are analyzed over the period 2000-2010. A "slow right" bias is found east of Puerto Rico in comparison with observed.
