Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Has anyone developed a Pertmaster Hurricane weather module for the Houston - Gulf Coast region that they will share? The current module seems to be for Jamaica or other frequent target.

I would be happy to offer my feeble attempt as a starting point, if anyone has some historical data that might be applied.

Thanks.

Hi Dennis

You are right - a quick google gave no list of hurricne data over the years.

You may want to try:

www.wxresearch.com/outlook/2007hurout.pdf.

which does seem to have some information.

In hindsight it may well be:

Give it a try.

PS I have a personal interest in this because my family are flying back from Houston to Norwich International this afternoon.

Thanks Mike but the data i have been able to find is neither as specific nor as detailed as I would like - generally only annual totals. The best I have found are two charts for Morgan City and Sabine Pass.

I was hoping someone else may have some better data. Again thanks for the response.

Hi Dennis

I am sure that NASA at Houston have some sort of predictive software that they can share with you.

Otherwise look at the records of the last 5 years and work out the statistical probability of a hurricane hitting your project.

Set this in your calendar for your current project and then update when hurricanes actually happen.

Hardly a contingency in Hereford Herefordshire or Hamshire as My fair Lady would have it.
