I know there is a list of links under "Storm Links" to the right, I'm interested in seeing what everyone uses/prefers. Maybe we can get a good list compiled!

I'll start:

Official Forecasts
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ - NHC
http://www.nrlmry.navy.mil/tc_pages/tc_home.html - NRL

Good general reference
http://www.skeetobiteweather.com/ - Skeetobite's site - storm tracks and forcasts; historical reference
http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/tropic/real-time/atlantic/storm/storm04L.html - Environmental conditions, Saharan Air Layer, Steering Layers, Computerized Dvorak, Microwave imagery, Wind analysis, etc.
http://twister.sbs.ohio-state.edu/tropical.html - Ohio State tropical weather site, including Vortex Recon (usually recon posted here faster than in NHC site)

Model Run Animations
http://moe.met.fsu.edu/tcgengifs/ - FSU model site - best there is
http://met.psu.edu/tropical/tcgengifs/ - PSU model site - alternate when FSU is down
http://weather.uwyo.edu/models/fcst/ukmet.html - UKMET model site (Univ. Wyoming)
http://www.nco.ncep.noaa.gov/pmb/nwprod/analysis/ - NOAA's NCEP model guidance (continental US only)
http://gray.ftp.clickability.com/wctvwebftp/wrf/ - WRF run from a FL TV station (WCTV) - new

Model Run Analysis
http://moe.met.fsu.edu/cyclonephase/ - FSU cyclone phase

Model Run Track/Intensity Graphics
http://euler.atmos.colostate.edu/~vigh/guidance/ - best track and intensity forcast graphics around
http://moe.met.fsu.edu/~acevans/models/ - Clark's track and intensity forecast graphics - new
http://www.sfwmd.gov/org/omd/ops/weather/plots.html - Track graphics (SFWMD)
http://www.sfwmd.gov/org/omd/ops/weather/vortex.html - comparison of forcast track to recon locations - very useful (SFWMD)

Historical Maps
http://www.solar.ifa.hawaii.edu/Tropical/tropical.html - good simple reference
http://weather.unisys.com/hurricane/atlantic/index.html - Atlantic storm tracks by year

NOAA also had a real good viewer that could search by zip and radius, but it seems broken right now - http://maps.csc.noaa.gov/hurricanes/index.html

Satellite Imagery
http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/trop-atl.html - NOAA's SSD site - very good, simple to use with huricane floaters
http://wwwghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/GOES/ - NASA's GHCC GOES site - very good, fully customizable, long period animations
http://manati.orbit.nesdis.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/qscat_storm.pl - NOAA's QuickScat hurricane coverage
http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/ - MODIS high res satellite coverage (not live)

http://www.meteo.psu.edu/~gadomski/SAT_ATL/recentir.html - PSU satellite display
http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~ovens/loops/wxloop.cgi - alternative site, but very difficult to use

Analysis Sites
http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/positions.html - Dvorak classification
http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/genesis.html - Tropical Cyclone Formation Probabilities

Sea Surface Temperatures
http://www7320.nrlssc.navy.mil/hhc/all_watl.html - Navy SST site
http://marine.rutgers.edu/cool/sat_data/?product=sst&region=gulfmexico&nothumbs=0 - Good alternative site if the navy site is down; also provides more detailed views

I wikized this page at This link anyone (logged in) can edit this and add their favorites.

This page is for "I'm looking for this thing about Hurricanes", rather then the main Links page which is more, "What all hurricane websites are there".

I had a link to a sat map site that was titled ORCA . I found here originally and in changing PC's it was lost, do you know where I could find it again.

The name ORCA doesn't ring a bell. I'd check through the sat links on the Site Links section and see if any of them is what you are looking for. Other wise a search engine or a lucky person that knows what it is are your best bet

Ocean Resources Conservation and Assessment is what it stands for, and the map was a flat globe and infrared temp, in motion for wind, and water patterns

Maybe I lost the comment before in the former thread, but any explanation why now GFDL model is which bends this storm most to the west and south. ┬┐Is there a web where these models come with some explanation of the path and the changes of the path like the Discussion part in NHC site?

The long linear path so far and the projected one make the most peculiar characteristic of this endless Storm. Never see one of this.
