The storm coordinates back to 1902 should be fixed now, click the link "Coordinates" on the left to see them.

Because of this, you can see some Interesting plots with the maps/satellite image.

Hurricane Andrew:

Turn to satellite mode and follow the path of Andrew inland, even on the satellite photos you can still see, quite plainly, where the storm went in Homestead if you zoom up.

You can do multiple storms, ie to see this year's Emily compared with Charley from last year. (Not implying it will do a Charley, btw)

The format for multiple pots is like this... you take the url
add a ?
then the year followed by an s then the number of that storm for the year

ie for Hurricane Hugo it would be

Now, say you wanted to overlay the last few big storms together with hugo

add a dash - after the 1989s8 and then put another year, we'll pick Andrew again 1992s21

Then we'll throw on Charley

And so forth, be careful, your browser will croak if you add too many storms.

Really interesting Mike. Especially when one enters Ivan in the picure. Being in Grand Cayman, obviously I am looking at those heading this way.
Any thoughts re Emily not making it past Venezuela and the ABC islands? Any thoughts you may have re possible land interaction and knocking out some of the potential development would be appreciated. Everyone in Cayman is very nervous and very anxious, just too soon after Ivan----don't think I could managage another 9 weeks without utilities!

Sher, there's a chance that may happen, but nothing's for certain in the tropics. The current south of due west movement is helpful towards keeping it negatively impacted by land, but whether or not it actually makes landfall on the continent remains to be seen. If it does affect S. America, it's more likely to be a scraping shot than anything, keeping the threat there to the rest of the Caribbean, but until it gets a bit closer, we won't know what it's going to do. As "easy" as Dennis may have been, this one is proving to be quite different.

I've got forecast tracks now showing on the maps. Soon you'll be able to interactively compare forecast tracks of prior points with actual points interactively.
