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.

Carlos dissipates; Delores comes and goes

Hurricane Carlos reached category 2 strength before decreasing to a tropical storm and eventually dissipating completely.

Around the same time, Tropical Storm Delores formed, lasting for about a day and then also dissipated as it entered cooler waters in the Pacific. Neither storm came close to affecting Hawaii.

The Eastern Pacific typically has a high number of storms throughout the season, much more than develop in the Atlantic. El nino has once again formed in the Pacific as well and the warmer water in the eastern Pacific Ocean will likely lead to more storms. So we will likely see a number of storms no as the season progresses.
