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 Cyclone Krovanh heading for Japan

Tropical Storm Krovanh developed in the western Pacific today. The storm projections indicate that this storm is heading for the center of the main island of Japan and will intensify to a Category 1 typhoon and then weakening before making landfall.

The strike reports are showing that there is a 50% chance of Krovanh hitting Japan as a tropical storm in the next 48 hours. In 72 hours Krovanh has a 40 - 45% liklihood of striking Tokyo, Iwaki and Shizouka.
