Probabilistic Storm Surge Forecasts

Products

esurge

The Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge Exceedances (P-Surge 2.5) data shows the probability, in percent, of a specified storm surge, including tides, exceeding the specified height, in feet, during the forecast period indicated. The 10 percent exceedance height, for example, is the storm surge height, including tides, above ground level (AGL) such that there is a 10 percent chance of exceeding it. The product is based upon an ensemble of Sea, Lake, and Overland Surge from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model runs using the National Hurricane Center (NHC) official advisory and accounts for track, size, and intensity errors based on historical errors and astronomical tide. Valid values are 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50.
