Best real time hurricane tracking loop


#1

http://www.goes.noaa.gov/HURRLOOPS/huirloop.html

It doesn’t show projected paths, but it is in real time(updated every 3 hours), and clearly shows the eye and the outer bands.

Tropical storm Alpha currently over the north coast of the DR doesn’t look too “organized”(which is a good thing) compared to Wilma with it’s defined “eye” and hopefully the DR will get off lightly.

Florida looks like it’s in for it…

So…it’s the most named storms since 1933(according to Yahoo news). And before that 1969. 36 years between 1933 and 1969. And 36 years between 1969 and 2005.

Coincidence? A pattern? Global warming?(If so, how do you explain 1933?) I know I would be looking at the frequency of storms in 1934, and 1970 before I would book anything for hurricane season(Aug - Nov) for 2006. But that’s just me… :-X

I like this one: Hurricane Tracker

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7845030

It shows the routes, speed of travel, speed of wind, progression and regression of the storm. Each stage of the path has a number of bits of info provided. The path of some of them are crazy! Jeanne in particular looks like a child’s wonky drawing and others look like they are on a mission (Ivan and Emily). Irene is non-committal but won’t quit. This site shows the projected path.

Kaki…that one is excellent as well…

Really interesting to look at the tracks of previous storms as well.
