The investigation focused on the storm's life cycle development as reflected in the daily minimum observed central pressure for each storm. These preliminary results discuss (1) whether a relationship between the hurricane intensity and solar flux may exist, (2) the nature of this relationship, and (3) the potential for predictive uses. The results include plots of hurricane minimum central pressure and the F10.7 cm flux data to address the influence of solar flux on storm intensity. A brief discussion of the potential dynamic coupling between these two parameters provides the basis for the study. The theoretical basis was formulated using a solar-terrestrial mechanism hypothesis developed for synoptic scale systems.
