the storm. This cycled, self-consistent hybrid DA system was not implemented to operational HWRF until 2017. However, the same operational HWRF Model in 2015 is used as a baseline in this study. b. HWRF Model configuration The HWRF Model was developed by the Environmental Modeling Center (EMC) in collaboration with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) and the University of Rhode Island (URI) based on the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model infrastructure and NonHydrostatic

the Bahama Islands at a translation speed of 3.45 m s −1 toward 26° from north ( Table 2 ), which is based on the Creasey and Elsberry (2017) Zero Wind Center (ZWC) technique that utilizes High Definition Sounding System (HDSS; Black et al. 2017 ) dropwindsondes. That is, an accurate determination of the ZWCs at two successive center overpasses during a NASA WB-57 mission provides a highly accurate translation speed and direction during the period between the two center overpasses. The CIMSS

spacing at locations farther from the TC center for all the Joaquin flights. Since the dropsondes are concentrated at smaller radii, with the majority of the drops occurring within 300 km of the center of the TC, data at larger radii are supplemented by nearby 0000 and 1200 UTC radiosondes deployed from Bermuda; Jacksonville, Florida; Miami, Florida; Newport, North Carolina; and Nassau, Bahamas. Bermuda also released several special 1800 UTC radiosondes as the island was directly affected by Joaquin
