Historical hurricane extrapolation track model
The model is based on the idea that given a large sample of possible storms weighted by similarity to characteristics of the best forecast (e.g., forward motion, intensity, etc), use the weighted ensemble to extrapolate beyond the forecast horizon given by the best prediction (National Hurricane Center).
