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.

Hurricane Julia forms in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Julia formed off the coast of Africa a couple of days ago. After passing the Cape Verde Islands as a tropical storm, Julia grew to a Category 1 hurricane and tunrd towards the northwest.

Hurricane Julia is expected to remain a Category 1 storm until the weekend when it becomes a tropical storm once again in cooler waters. The storm is currently not expected to affect land at all, but will likely die out in the central Atlantic as it moves north.
