Welcome! It is 7:14:28 AM on Friday, December 19, 2014. This page has served 453781 hurricane watchers. Last update: Wednesday, May 7, 2014.


How did El Nino '97-'98 impact the '98 Atlantic hurricane season? Well, there were 14 named storms! We have 2210 Days before the 2008 season ends!

Nature's Show: A Visible image of Hurricane Bonnie, 08/23/98 @9:45am, 190 miles east of San Salvador Island, Bahamas. Bonnie was stationary and paused to recurve to the north--her central pressure had dropped to 957 mb, 28.29 inches. Yesterday at this time her central pressure was ~980mb, a remarkble drop! Outflow seems a little restricted on the west side of the storm.

Rationale:

Hurricanes (Table of Contents on this Page!)

I decided to split my hurricane page into three separate pages--The Hurricane Main Page, A Hurricane Movie Archive Page, and a Current Tropical Satellite Imagery and Movie Page.

I separated this site from the main weather site to make the info more accessible for Tropical Weather Lovers and hasten download time. It includes My Favorite Sources of Tropical Information, Reconnaissance Information, Buoy Data, Satellite Movies , Single Frame Satellite Imagery, Spectacular Imagery from Previous Years , Computer Models , Radar , Predictive Forecasting Tools, the Saffir-Simpson Scale of Hurricane Intensity and a Temperature and Pressure Conversion Chart. Thanks to all of the wonderful organizations and resources on the Net!
