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.

Tropical Depression 3 skirts the Carolina coast

Last night, the tropical low system off the South Carolina coast developed into Tropical Depression 3. Currently with winds at 35 MPH, this system could develop into a tropical storm before moving away from the coast. Topical Storm watches and warnings are in place along the South Carolina and North Carolina coasts.

The computer models have all converged to show a fairly consistent predicted storm track of a north easterly direction. The affected areas will include coastal regions from Myrtle Beach up to as far north as Virginia Beach.

Fox News reported that the key issue for this storm will be heavy rains. The stronger winds are and will likely remain over water and therefore will not pose an issue for land other than possible waves and rip currents on the shore.

Weather Channel Tropical Update from last night

Another system to watch is a tropical wave that is crossing the southern Caribbean and could threaten Gulf Coast interests later next week.
