The art of hurricane forecasting: intensity, path, & size
- "The sultry summer months along the Gulf Coast and East Coast are a time of volatile weather as warm ocean water fuels storms, some just bringing rain and some growing into fierce tropical storms and hurricanes. The World Meteorological Organization rotates an alphabetical naming system every year to simplify references to tropical storms and hurricanes, but selecting a name is perhaps the simplest task surrounding them, while the more complex challenge lies in predicting where they will go." - Excerpt from NOAA National Weather Service.
