Caption: Hurricane model. Supercomputer model of the development of a simulated hurricane over four days. The coloured areas indicate precipitation, in millimetres per hour, with red being the heaviest and blue the lightest. The arrows indicate wind speed. Simulations such as this can help to predict the strength and longevity of a hurricane. These data can be used to advise people in its path of the best course of action.
