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 TWO - South Indian Ocean

The second tropical cyclone formed in the South Indian Ocean approximately 800 miles northeast of Madagascar. Current information is that conditions are favorable for slight development to a Category 1 cyclone as it passes to the north of Madagascar. Wind shear is currently low and water temperatures in this spot are high.

As the cyclone approaches the African coast, it is expected to reach an area of higher wind shear which will degrade the cyclone back to a tropical storm before making landfall.

Information is currently very limited. We will update as soon as more info is available.
