Central Florida Hurricane Center Hurricane Data Links

Use this if you are searching for a certain type of data, for more generic or other sites, see the regular Links page.

Official Forecasts

http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/ - National Hurricane Center

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http://www.skeetobiteweather.com/ - Skeetobite's site - storm tracks and forcasts; historical reference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
