Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

National Hurricane Center Tropical Weather Outlook

From the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fl. This could be the start.


10:30 EDT Friday Jun 9, 2006

For the North Atlantic... Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico

A broad area of low pressure centered between Honduras and western Cuba has changed little in organization during the past few hours. However, ... conditions appear to be favorable for this system to become a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next 12 to 24 hours. This system is expected to move northward across extream western Cuba and the Yucatan Channel bringing squalls and additional rains to the Cayman Islands and portions of Cuba. An Air Force reconaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system tomorrow afternoon ... if necessary.

All interests in the northwestern Caribbean Seaand the southeastern Gulf of Mexico should closely monitor the progress of this system. Because development could occur near Cuba at any time on Saturday ... A tropical storm watch or warning may be required for portions of western Cuba.

Elsewhere ... tropical storm formation is not expected through Sunday.
