Hurricane Odile Simulation
Hurricane Odile swept across the Baja California Peninsula in September 2014 leaving behind widespread damage, flooding, and power outages.
This model is a single time step from a 15-minute Hurricane Weather Research Forecast (HWRF) simulation (1251x1251x61) of Hurricane Odile shortly after it made landfall. The surface represents absolute vorticity (12e-5 s-1) colored by relative humidity.
