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 Storm Fay tracks toward Florida west coast

Tropical Storm Fay has formed in the Caribbean despite the friction from the mountains of Hispanola. Current track predictions have all converged on Fay coming up the west coast of Florida and coming ashore near the Georgia-Alabama state line.

Steering currents include a high pressure system off the east coast that will pull Fay northward as she approaches the US. Very warm water in the Gulf of Mexico will greatly increase the liklihood of further development and the chance of Fay becoming a hurricane.
