GFS upgrade & hurricane forecasting

Posted by cypresstx on 3/13/2017, 3:20 pm

was reading Paul Douglas' blog today & came across the following - anyone hear anything on this?

Hurricane Forecasters Sent a Blunt Warning to their Bosses. Andrew Freedman at Mashable has a post detailing growing concerns about the latest upgrade to the GFS, the Global Forecast System, NOAA's premiere (global) weather model. Apparently it doesn't do as well predicting hurricane track and intensity. In this case "upgrading" could mean a step backwards for meteorologists and the public.

here's the Mashable link he referenced:  http://mashable.com/2017/03/10/hurricane-forecasts-suffer-gfs-model-upgrade/?utm_cid=hp-r-1#lnfFKDOyNmqB
