In 2017 Ophelia was the first hurricane that reached so far north and east. Her genesis was not typical nor her life or path. With the climate change and the temperature increase this kind of scenarios might become more numerous in the future and increase the hurricane threat for western/northwestern Europe, therefore it is crucial to work on acquiring new prognostic skills that could come in handy in the upcoming years. The simulator covers only the day before landfall to Ireland since the landfall has the biggest social and economic impact. Additionaly, since the area affected will be big, the warnings need to be issued early enough to organise the community and government officials as to decrease any kind of loss. In the simulator you can practise your forecasting skills and sending out relevant and timely warnings.
