  • Description:
    Relevant research reports are reviewed briefly. They are the basis for concluding that the possibility of cool inflow should be considered regularly in making Eastern Pacific hurricane intensity forecasts. Greater inflow into the right side of a moving storm has special significance for Eastern Pacific hurricane intensity changes. The areal extent of the storm's circulation is another important factor in determining the amount of cool inflow. Satellite pictures reveal much about the volume of air rising in a hurricane's central chimney and, therefore, of the cyclone's intensity. Further application of satellite information and a computer program could be the way to improved intensity forecasts.
