During the winter season, CARCAH works with the National Center of Environmental Prediction to coordinate winter storm requirements, which also includes atmospheric river support over. These limited forecasts left little time for preparation before a hurricane struck. Without advanced preparation, hurricanes are lethal. On NOAA’s list of the deadliest hurricanes to strike the United States, the overwhelming majority of storms occurred before hurricane prediction reached levels necessary to adequately serve the public.
