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.

Alex projected storm tracks continue to shift to the north

The above graphic (courtesy of is the current live computer model projections of the track that Tropical Storm Alex is likely to take as it crosses the Gulf of Mexico.
Earlier today we presented an analysis of where Alex would go and why we thought that would be the case. One issue that we pointed out is that the bulk of the model tracks appears to be drifting more to the north. Saturday night the storm tracks all pointed to the central Mexico coast. Now they all seem concentrated at the northern Mexico coast near Brownsville, TX. The entire Texas coast is at risk with the approach of Alex.
