Posted at 1:00 AM ET

This new research brief from Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre, City University of Hong Kong reports on verifications of forecasts in 2010. Since 2000, City University of Hong Kong has been issuing real-time predictions of the annual number of tropical cyclones (TCs) affecting the western North Pacific (WNP). Verifications of the predictions have shown that the predictions are mostly correct within the error bars. We also began to predict the number of TCs making landfall in South China (SC) and the Korea and Japan region (KJ) in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
