The Joint Hurricane Testbed continues to facilitate the testing, implementation, and transition of new forecasting tools, techniques and model advances, developed by the tropical cyclone research community. The testing and implementation are carried out at the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The JHT identifies new techniques, models, observing systems, etc. with potential for improving forecast guidance, via an announcement of opportunity and a proposal, review, and funding process. This presentation provides an overview of the JHT, a description of the ongoing projects and best practices in transitioning research to operations.
