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.

This bears watching in the Atlantic

The NWS sidebar feed is calling the latest tropical wave off Africa vigorous.

A VIGOROUS TROPICAL WAVE HAS EMERGED FROM AFRICA OVER THE FAREASTERN ATLANTIC OCEAN. GRADUAL DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM ISPOSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT MOVES WESTWARD AT 15TO 20 MPH.

It will be interesting to see if this develops any. There have been a bunch of tropical waves form both in the Caribbean and off the African coast but they have all been uneventful. Describing this as vigorous makes me suspect we might see some action from it.

UPDATE:


These are some of the computer models predicting the path and development of this tropical wave. The meteorologist at KHOU (Channel 11 in Houston - CBS Affiliate) commented that several models were predicting that the wave could develop into a hurricane and come straight into our general area. This map from Weather Underground certainly supports that.
