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 Warning

Updated: 8:00 pm Friday, August 21, 2009

Additional Information:
The Doppler Radar has detected evidence of tornadic activity in passing rain bands, just offshore of the western Parishes. As such there is a measurable risk, albeit small, of localised tornadoes touching down at isolated spots across the Island, especially towards the west, during the next couple of hours. These tornadoes are especially associated with bands of heavy rain, showers, and thunderstorms. Winds associated with tornadoes have the potential to be extremely damaging.
