Welcome! It is 1:17:27 AM on Tuesday, September 27, 2016. This page has served 138238 hurricane watchers since 5/14/00. Last update: Wednesday, May 7, 2014.

After many years of research, I have finally found the answer to the effects El Nino has on Hurricane Development. See for yourself: A movie of: "How El Nino Effects Hurricane Development" Thanks Chris Farley!

Nature's Show: A Visble image of Hurricane Howard in the eastern Pacific on 08/22/98. Howard reached a maximum intensity of 130 kt winds and a central pressure of 27.45 inches. Note the dense CDO (Central Dense Overcast). Wow!

    The Weather Channel Sat Loops

    General Thoughts: The Weather Channel provides an array of satellite movies that can't be found anywhere else on the web. Besides being so geographically diverse, the movies provide very impressive visual contrast with blue oceans, brown landscapes and white clouds. The sat loops are animated gifs.
