BLOHW Model provides current and forecast wind estimates
for locations within a hurricane's circulation and projects
these winds along the forecast path of the hurricane.
The BLOHW Model is based on equations describing the radial
profile of horizontal wind flow around a hurricane inside
and outside of the storm's radius of maximum wind. These
equations capture the large-scale circulation around a
hurricane. The better organized and more intense a storm,
the better these equations describe the wind flow around
A current "snapshot" of the hurricane location
and wind profile.
and Maximum Wind Forecast
A current "forecast" of the hurricane track
and of maximum winds anticipated along the hurricane's
path over the next 24, 48, or 72 hours.
and Maximum Wind Forecast Closeup
A local "closeup" view of the Track and Maximum
Wind Forecast (see above paragraph) positioned near
the anticipated storm landfall location.
A current forecast "landfall snapshot" of
the projected hurricane position and wind profile at
time of landfall.
Hourly Storm Forecast
An hourly listing of forecast wind conditions and storm
positions relative to local points of interest along
the Central Gulf Coast. These points are displayed on
an interactive map.
