rrricanesdata is the complementary dataset for rrricanes. Currently it contains all product datasets for every cyclone that has developed in the north Atlantic and northeast Pacific basins since 1998.

rrricanesdata will be updated on the first of every month.

Prerequisites

No prerequisites.

Installing

rrricanesdata can be installed with the following command:

This package is not nor will be made available in CRAN.

Updating

As rrricanesdata will be updated monthly (provided any advisory was issued the previous month), you will want to ensure you have the latest datasets prior to running any analysis. You need to add the package repository to your repos options, such as:

options(repos = c(getOption("repos"), "https://timtrice.github.io/drat/")

You can then run update.packages to check for and install any new updates.
