Abstract

A primitive equation, limited-area, barotropic model with east-west cyclic boundary conditions is used to predict the movement of “Western Disturbances” in the Asian subtropics in two cases. Forecast and verification charts up to 72 hr and relevant error statistics are presented. Results are encouraging enough for the study of more such cases, and for the application of the model for low-latitude monsoon depressions and tropical cyclones.
