    Summary of the NHC/TPC Tropical Cyclone Track and Intensity Guidance Models

    Below is the "key" to understand which "alien" is which:
    GFS Global Forecast System
    GFDL (Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory) is a limited area baroclinic model developed specifically for hurricane prediction.
    NOGAPS is the U.S. Navy's global spectral forecast
    BAM (Beta and Advection) Model -- BAMM model is run with medium vertically averaged winds
    LBAR (Limited area sine transform BARotropic) is a two-dimensional track prediction model
    SHIPS (Statistical Hurricane Intensity Prediction Scheme) is a statistical model that uses climatological, persistence and synoptic predictors
