Summary The overall objective of the collaborative effort is to improve the Wind Probability Estimation Program utilized by the National Centers for Environmental Prediction's Tropical Prediction Center. Specifically, the collaborators will improve the current Monte Carlo model by a) refining the probability estimates by incorporating storm specific measures of track uncertainty; b) optimizing code to make probability products timelier; c) modify probability distribution code to provide updates to existing National Hurricane Center experimental products. The partners will continually analyze and evaluate the modifications to the Wind Probability Estimation Program and identify areas of improvement.
