Change to SSHWS

#1 Postby InfernoFlameCat » Fri Dec 18, 2020 9:41 am

Instead of scrapping this I think we should add a storm size feature.
Like for a storm with a 150 km radius of gale force winds the storm gets a + and for 400km ++ with a max of 5+
Katrina at landfall would be a 3++++ and sandy a 1+++++ but Andrew 5+
Like maybe each + be treated as potential storm surge implication.
What do y´all think?

I am by no means a professional. DO NOT look at my forecasts for official information or make decisions based on what I post.

Goal: to become a registered expert over tropical and subtropical cyclones.

Gotta go with a no on this one. To me that would make it WAY more complicated than it is now.

I am in no way a professional. Take what I say with a grain of salt as I could be totally wrong. Please refer to the NHC for official information.

I'd scrap the SSHWS entirely and replace it with one that balances the impact of surge, rain, and wind.
