Abstract : Highlights of our progress include significant improvements in intensity and track predictions for hurricanes with the use of physical initialization techniques and very high resolution (T170) global and regional (T240) model forecasts using the FSU models. These improvements are supported by results of forecasts made for Hurricanes Erin and Opal of 1995 and Hurricane Fran of 1996.
