Dvorak Intensity

Where can I get good Dvorak Intensity data for storms and invests? I noticed the links on the NHC satellite page but they just have black and white images where I don't even know what I'm looking at.

I'll try and look for the page that explains how they estimate the strength through Dvorak.

I've actually read how they do the Dvorak Intensity, I just didn't know where exactly to find the data. Thanks!

I got a question about the names. Sincee TD3 has developed before 94L.Will TD3 automatically get named Cristobal when it forms to a TS possibly?

Post moved from Main Page to proper Forum.

Is it me or am I the Only Person who thinks the NHC Needs Some Better names to go along with our Present Day&time.....?

I would say the system off South Carolina stands a real good chance at being Cristobal or Crystal Ball.
Pun intended.
94L appear to be tangling with the hill and mountains of the Greater Antilles tonight. Looks like the ULL to 94L's north has managed to tug some of the convection over the islands.
I would not want to be on the islands tonight. Rain and mudslides will be in the moderate category.
