Why hurricane forecasting?

Seasonal North Atlantic Hurricane forecasting, although far from perfect, is a rapidly evolving research area. From its beginnings at Colorado State University in 1984, more than a dozen centres, ranging from private companies to governmental weather and climate research groups such now produce their own forecasts. However, there currently exists no regularly updated centralised repository for comparing and contrasting these forecasts as and when they are published. Given that North Atlantic Hurricanes are the biggest natural peril loss drivers to the insurance industry, it is imperative that we understand the science behind these storms in order to understand the risk they pose in any given year. This website will help to collate the views of the leading academics in this research space, and will help to spark debate between scientists and stakeholders to help drive forward our understanding of North Atlantic hurricane risk, volatility and uncertainty.
