    With Hurricane Harvey hitting the Texas Gulf Coast, I came across this article, while trying to learn about these different computer models.
    I found the article in this PDF file an interesting read. I'm sure that there have been some advances in real-time prediction methods, since this article (Nov. 2008). And yet we still have estimates, which often disagree with each other.

    Predictive analysis in multiphysics is challenging.

    You might find this open access news article from Science magazine interesting.

    Its about new approaches in weather and climate prediction.

    Here is another news article from Science magazine, on this subject, WRT the current storm.

    Here is a summary of Maria. There is an image showing the predicted paths Maria will take over the next 5 days, hopefully out to sea, rather than over the coast.

    The last image is a table with the low pressure readings from various intense hurricanes. The pressure is just one key variable one has to include in a simulation.
