Historically, most decision makers have inferred the arrival of tropical-storm-force winds from NHC products deterministically, without accounting for tropical cyclone track or size uncertainty. The risk in not factoring in these uncertainties is that communities may have less time to prepare if a tropical cyclone speeds up or increases in size beyond NHC’s initial forecasts. To better meet users’ needs, NHC is working with social scientists and GIS experts to develop graphical prototypes depicting when tropical-storm-force winds from an approaching tropical cyclone could arrive at individual locations. The social science testing has included one-on-one telephone interviews, focus groups, and online surveys with emergency managers and broadcast meteorologists to gather their opinions on the idea, content, and design of the product. NHC will incorporate the results from this testing to develop a final prototype, with the intent of providing an experimental graphical product for the 2017 or 2018 hurricane season.
