Model Listing


The following is not a complete listing of models, though it does contain many of the models that you will see released in the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) public model files. Some of the models that the NHC uses below are rarely released into the public model file for a storm. Some are released after a storm is active.

We use a variety of sources for the below data. We only include extra information when it is provided specifically about that model. Even though some of the blanks could easily be filled in on some of the models, we chose not to unless the information was available specifically for that model in reliable documentation that we could find.

Consensus models listed below, that are a combination of other models, could change at any time, such as year to year. When available, the year the consensus membership was last verified to be correct for is noted.

You can select a model name or type in the list below to view the models associated with it. This page is automatically created. That is why it is not formatted in the most friendly way possible.
Main Model Listing
Deprecated Model Listing
Models are added to this section when we find evidence that they are either "retired or objective aids (guidance) no longer in use". (This description of "deprecated" models comes from the April 18th, 2008 entry in the file here.) There will be models in the main model listing that should also be in this section and they will be added when we find they should be.

IVCR - Intensity Consensus (For 2021, consensus of at least two of: DSHP / LGEM / HWFI / RI?? [RI25 or RI30 or RI35 or RI40] + CTCI) (more)
The update to the members of this model's consensus was verified in the June 22nd, 2021 update to the NHC's techlist file. At some point prior, GHMI was removed.
IVRI - Intensity Consensus (see our model listing page for description) (more)
On June 22nd, 2021 the NHC made an update to the techlist file. For IVRI it said:
"Consensus of 5: DHSP/LGEM/HHFI/CHTI+RI40 or RI35 or RI30 or RI25"

In the previous update, on June 3rd, 2016, for IVRI it said:
"Consensus of 5: DHSP/LGEM/GHMI/HWFI/CTCI+RI40 or RI35 or RI30 or RI25"

We are unsure if "CHTI" is correct or if it should be "CHCI" or remain "CTCI". There is no listing for "CHTI" in the techlist file. However, we found an article here for "CHTI" which listed a definition as "COAMPS-TC model radii/interpolated forecast".

We are not sure what the consensus members are for this model.

An article here from 2015 says "Sampson et al. (2011) developed a deterministic rapid intensification aid (IVRI; also known as RAPID) that employs probabilistic SHIPS-RII forecasts in conjunction with the existing intensity five-member consensus (IVCN)."

We are unsure if it still includes the members of the IVCN and the RI?? like it did in 2016 as well.
HCCA - HFIP Corrected Consensus Approach model (For 2019: AEMI, AVNI, CTCI, DSHP, EGRI, EMNI, EMXI, HWFI, LGEM) (more)

Parameters forecast: Track and Intensity

Consensus Model Methods: Positive/negative weighting coefficients; better performing models receive large weight

We last reviewed this consensus model in June 2021. The consensus members are based on either an update to the NHC's nhc_techlist.dat file in June 2021 or were valid as of the 2019 NHC model verification report released in 2020.
RVCN - Wind Radii Consensus (Consensus composition in June 2019: AHNI, HHFI, EHHI, CHCI; See our model listing page for important note) (more)
Ensemble Members: AHNI, HHFI, EHHI, CHCI (FV3GFS, HWRF, ECMWF, COAMPS-TC)
Consensus Model Methods: Multi-model wind radii, bias corrected initial wind
NHC Forecast Parameter: 34-kt wind radii

A previous description from the NHC for this model was: R34 Wind Radii Consensus

For more information, see PDF page 124 in the file here.

On June 22nd, 2021 the NHC made an update to the techlist file. For RVCN it said:
"Wind Radii Consensus of >=2: AVHI/EMXI/HHFI/ (2017 version)"

The model was not in the file previously.

The consensus members we currently include are the ones from the page here on the NHC's site. That page, updated on June 11th, 2019, had "AHNI, HHFI, EHHI, CHCI". That is what we currently use since it seems like the techlist version might be missing a model and it has a date of 2017. Some of the other models are different in it as well.

We are not certain what the most recent consensus members are for this model.
NNIC - Neural Network Intensity Consensus model (see our model listing page for description) - Experimental (more)
NHC techlist file description: Neural Net Intensity Consensus (Bias Corrected)

We emailed the National Hurricane Center about this model and received this response on June 22nd, 2021:

"Here is some additional information on the NNIC/NNIB models:

NNIC is the Neural Network Intensity Consensus model
NNIB is the Neural Network Intensity Baseline model

The inputs to NNIC include intensity forecasts from 4 deterministic intensity models (HWFI, AVNI, DSHP, LGEM) and 4 other predictors.

The model input includes 5 predictors as follows:

(1) the mean intensity from the 4 models,
(2)-(5) The deviation of each model from the mean.

The four other inputs include the following:

(6) The previous 12 hr intensity change (t=0 minus t=-12h max wind)
(7) The latitude along the OFCI track
(8) The SST along the OFCI track,
(9) The 850-200 hPa shear along the OFCI track

Predictors (6)-(9) are obtained as part of the SHIPS model diagnostics.

The NNIB model is just the simple mean of the same four models used as input to NNIC. It is used as a baseline to see if the neural network can improve on the simple mean.

The NNIC forecast is from a fully connected neural network with 1 input layer (9 nodes), 1 hidden layer (9 nodes) and 1 output layer (1 output per forecast time). The network was trained on data from 2013-2020, with a separate network for each time from 12 to 168 hr. The Atlantic and combined eastern and central Pacific were trained separately. At least 2 of the 4 input models must be available for NNIC to make a forecast. Because HWFI only provides a forecast to 120 hr, the longer range forecasts are less reliable.

NNIC is experimental and is undergoing its first end to end test in 2021 where the output is being put in the public A-decks. Caution should be exercised downloading this model."
