Short summary
Three 7 km mesh next-generation global models and a 20 km mesh conventional global model were run to improve tropical cyclone (TC) prediction. The 7 km mesh models reduce systematic errors in the TC track, intensity and wind radii predictions. However, the simulated TC structures and their intensities in each case are very different for each model. These results suggest that the development of more sophisticated initialization techniques and model physics is needed to further improvement.
