2023 HURRTRAK Software Enhancements...

Click on the item headings below for more information (some include video links)

"ExpertEase" – Our highly rated ExpertEase, will continue in the 2023 software and includes all 4 seasons making it a year round benefit. Please note that this feature is ONLY available to users who maintain the current version of the Hurrtrak software. In order to continue receiving these updates, you need to upgrade to the 2023 software. For those less familiar with the feature, ExpertEase is a superior tool in your data arsenal. On a daily basis via video update, our chief meteorologist discusses current tropical (and now also non-tropical) conditions as well as what is likely to occur in the near term. These observations are integrated within the Hurrtrak program throughout the Atlantic Hurricane season and also available via a web browser. Unique to PC Weather Product’s portfolio, ExpertEase gives you “inside” knowledge of the factors and conditions affecting the path and strength of active tropical storms as well as the details on winter storms and spring severe weather. Remember, it is available to all users with current Hurrtrak software installed.

Revamped/Enhanced Damage Comments –  This version of the Hurrtrak system includes considerable changes to the damage comments by including several addtional factors. They include storm surge probabilities, SLOSH estimated surge levels and wind damage descriptors including likelyhood of power outages based on the predominant tree species in the area, etc..

Narrative Impact Statement enhancements –  The Narrative Impact Statements have been improved to take advantage of the damage comment changes above. The location based impact statements include more information about storm surge impacts as well as more comments about potential damage to structures and infrastructure.

Storm Surge Probability expansion –  Rather than just using storm surge probabilities for 5, 10, 15, 20 feet... we now utilize storm surge probabilities for 1 through 25 feet. This allows us to better capture the likelyhood of surge flooding.

SLOSH based storm surge levels –  We added program logic to estimate surge levels well ahead of the issuance of Hurricane Center storm surge watches and warnings.

Hurricane Forecast Wind Estimation Improvements –  With concept of constant improvement... we have continued to make enhancements to the wind estimation routines within the system.  All of these changes are "under the covers" within the program code.

2023 Parameters Updated – Our 2023 release includes the latest historical data as well as error cone radii, watch/warning points data and NWS zone changes.

Miscellaneous technical and user interface improvements - Several internal enhancements to keep up with the changing security nature of data and more consistent user interface methods.
