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.

TS 23 to cross over Guam tomorrow

Before menacing the Philippines, Tropical Storm 23 will strike Guam with 40 + MPH winds and heavy rain.

Lurking storm to pass Guam at noon (KUAM)
Maximum sustained winds associated with 23-W are 40 MPH and the storm is expected to intensify over the next 24 hours after it passes the Marianas. Island residents can expect increasing showers and thunderstorms beginning late this morning into the afternoon. Guam remains in Condition of Readiness 4.

Meanwhile, Saipan has been declared in Condition of Readiness 2 with the possibility of damaging winds.

It is important to remember that the majority of storms that have hit the Philippines, Taiwan, Hainan and Vietnam this season have all crossed Guam either as a depression, tropical storm or even a low grade typhoon.
