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.

Some New Stuff

Hey Friends,

Just want to say hello and ask for some feedback on a few changes. First of all, I've dropped the large format AccuWeather dashboard. Instead I went back to the Weather channel magnet. just enter your ZIP code for the weather forecast in your area.

The most noticeable difference is the addition of the Mariner's 1-2-3 Rule graphic from the National Weather Service. This provides a rough estimate of where tropical systems are forming and how they are predicted to progress. As of this writing, NTD Andrea is on the chart churning near Florida.

Additionally, I've added continuously updated RSS feeds for the Atlantic Basin and Eastern Pacific. Now the National Hurricane Center official statements are here and completely up to date for use as an accurate reference.

If the 07 tropical season is as active as is currently being predicted, these tools should help us a bunch. I will also be adding links on evacuation plans from various regions along the coast and survival info.

Let me know what you think.
