TC verification

 Eleven NWP centers (BoM, CMA, CMC, DWD, ECMWF, JMA, KMA, Météo-France, NCEP, NRL and Met Office) participated in the WGNE project on intercomparison of tropical cyclone forecasts in 2014. JMA summarized the results and prepared the  paper:

Yamaguchi, M., M. Nakagawa, J. Ishida, and H. Sato, 2017: WGNE Intercomparison of Tropical Cyclone Forecasts by Operational NWP Models: A Quarter-Century and Beyond. Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc. doi:10.1175/BAMS-D-16- 0133.1

Now it can be viewed at BAMS November 2017

A lead centre on TC forecast verification is planned to be established at JMA.
