This is what forecasters were able to predict -- two hours ahead of the storm’s formation.
These models were run on the high-end computation system at the University of Illinois, one of the major nodes comprising NSF’s “Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure” or PACI, as it is called.
The red arrow shows the predicted site of the storm’s development.
It’s a virtual match for the storm’s actual path.
