US Winter Storm Snapshot

The 2021 Arctic Air Outbreak brought unprecedented freezing temperatures and snow to the southern US. By ingesting real-time meteorological data and directly simulating the atmospheric environment, the KCC US Winter Storm Reference Model quickly estimated insured losses as the event evolved. As the impacts of the event have become clearer over time, the early KCC estimate remains a reliable representation of the sustained damage. Because similar winter storms were already included in the KCC stochastic event catalog, the model reflected this rare but meteorologically feasible event with a high level of accuracy.
