Hurricane Tracking: It's Not Your Grandmother's Tracking Chart

Remember the olden days when the only updates we received about tropical storms and hurricanes were the latitude and longitude coordinates and we had to manually plot those coordinates on tracking charts?  No spaghetti models.  No freaking cones of freaking probability.

I've always been obsessed with the weather.  I could name the types of clouds when I was 6 years old.  Now, with all of the information available I have crossed from obsessed with the weather to possessed by the weather.

I'm a Demonic Hurricane Tracker.

I need a hurricane-orcism.

The tools of my obsession:


Golden Triangle Weather Page

National Hurricane Center

Spaghetti Models


Weather Underground
