Latest Hurricane and Tropical Storm Tracking
The 2012 hurricane season names are Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valerie, William.
These summers the water gets as hot in the gulf as the satellites can record. During those times these Hurricanes easily reach Category 4 or 5. Summer peak water temperatures will be hotter the rest of our lives. At summer peaks the super hot water extends all the way out of the gulf and into the Cuban and Antilles islands - so this is exactly where the new Hurricanes form. During those times storms will be strong before even entering the gulf unlike Katrina which revved up only after entering the gulf.
Latest Atlantic Hurricane and Tropical Storm Overview
Sea Temperatures right now
LIVE WEEKLY IMAGE! Red, Orange and Yellow areas are the warmest ocean temperatures. When hurricanes hit these areas they grow strong FAST. Hot water is gasoline for hurricanes. Compare the storm clouds in the image above and below and notice how they grow in exactly these red areas. When water was cooler in summers past hurricanes didn't get so strong.Austraila typical sees strong storms in the USA's winter.
It isn't just global warming any longer. It's now the global boil and it's happening and will cause super hurricanes the rest of our lives.
Atlantic Global satellite image - Florida is just above the image center
LIVE IMAGE! Watch hurricanes form here to the right --> off the coast of Africa weeks before they make the news!
South Pacific Global satellite image -Australia just below center, Japan above center, China left of center LIVE IMAGE! This is a view of the Pacific Ocean and Asia west of Hawaii. Notice the Hawaiian islands outlined on the far upper right side at the edge of the globe. Keep an eye on storms approaching those islands. Hawaii is at great risk from the new superstorms too! And also realize that storms approaching Japan and Asia can affect prices of electronics and chip markets.
Pressurewaves This LIVE satellite image shows the current low pressure waves in the Atlantic where hurricanes can form.
This LIVE satellite image is a closeup of the Gulf and Atlantic ocean. Know what is coming a week ahead.
Notice how cloud formation match low pressure areas (marked with "L") in image above

LIVE IMAGE! This is a satellite image closeup of the Pacific ocean off Mexico and the California Coast. We had three hurricanes at once here Sept 19th and the news didn't even tell you because none were near land! Hurricanes off Mexico can cause extensive flooding, mudslides and property damage in California from many rainy days in a row. Know if the rain today is a short storm or the first of many days in a row. Keep watch here and protect your property!
LIVE IMAGE! This satellite image shows most of the whole Pacific ocean. Mexico and the California Coast above and right of the center. Hawaii is just left above the center. South America is to the lower right of center. New Zealand can be seen near the very bottom left.
Gulf Close up LIVE IMAGE! This satellite image of the gulf coast shows you if Texas or the Gulf states of Lousiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida are going to be hit again.
Temperature anomalies Wondering if it usually gets this hot? Of course it doesn't no matter what the politicians say. This current satellite LIVE WEEKLY IMAGE shows you just how MUCH hotter areas of the sea especially the gulf are than normal. Orange and yellow areas in anomalies are hotter than past averages. A yellow area is at least 1 degree centigrade hotter than in the past. Orange areas are several degrees hotter!
This additional LIVE CLOSEUP WEEKLY IMAGE of ocean temperatures anomalies shows details of water temperatures hotter than normal - Hotter water is gasoline for Hurricanes
This additional weekly history of Atlantic ocean warmth and higher than normal anomalies shows water temperatures hotter than normal - Hotter water is gasoline for Hurricanes
Melting Poles/ The Polar ice caps
TODAY - updates every day
!!!Aug 31 2008 Alert-This is a historic week - For the first time since HUMANS HAVE BEEN ON EARTH the North Pole Ice cap is now an island. Ice retreated from BOTH the full Russian and Canadian coasts this week!! The implications of the new shipping routes around the north of Canada and Russia are staggering. Russia now has direct northern shipping routes for oil and goods. Canada has issued a statement claiming its rights to its side of the passage around the pole. All ships must notify Canada before taking the route. The strategic and oil shipping energy implications of the equivalents of two new Panama Canals can't be overestimated. The routes cut 4000 miles off the shipping route from Europe to Japan for example. It's likely the north Pole will always be an island from this summer forward.
This IMAGE shows Daily Radar measurements of ice levels at the North Pole (The South Pole is on the right) -Light Blue is thick ice. Darker blue at the edges is thinner ice. White is snow cover. As the poles melt sea levels rise. Watch how almost no ice remains at the north pole in July and August now
--------NORTH POLE ICE-----(TODAY)------SOUTH POLE ICE------
This IMAGE shows winds (shaded areas) and contour lines of pressure where storms may form -
Below you see current pressure and high altitude wind systems over America. H's are highs and L's are lows. The number next to the letter is the actual pressure. The circles around the letter show you the "shape". Hurricanes are always lows. High's can push hurricanes away. The little sticks lean away from wind. More flags on the sticks' ends mean stronger winds. Strong cross winds over lows can prevent hurricane formation but hurricanes once formed will show very high circular winds. The colored lines and shapes are temperatures at high altitude in centigrade.
