Welcome to Tropical Atlantic

Our site's features include a live reconnaissance system for hurricane hunter aicraft with live tracking in Google Earth and Cesium, hurricane models in Google Maps and Earth from NOAA and ECMWF, near real time P-3 aircraft radar data from the NOAA hurricane hunters, a customizeable satellite page, recon archive, model archive, distance calculator, satellite image overlays for Google Earth, media files from the NOAA-AOC and various links to hurricane related content.

The National Hurricane Center is the official hurricane forecast center for the Atlantic basin. If you visit one site, their site is the place to go to get the latest official information. When a tropical feature has reached depression status, the front page will feature what you need to look at. Take a look at the "Public Advisory" which will appear on the front page under the heading of the tropical feature for easy to understand language. The site also features the forecast track for the storm and other products.
Have a hurricane plan.
Be ready.
