Seasonal East Coast Winter Storm Frequency Forecast
These graphs show forecasts of seasonal East Coast Winter Storm (ECWS) frequency. The time series view shows both the forecast for the current season as well as forecasts made during past seasons.
The Predictor Variable View graphs show the combinations of predictor variables upon which the forecasts are based. The black line divides the scatterplot into the combination of variables that define high and low activity forecasts.
Information concerning the identification of individual storms appears in Hirsch et al. (2000). Details on the relationship between storm strength and coastal impacts is given in DeGaetano (2007).
