Storm Tracks and Other Data

  • National Hurricane Center (NHC) Data Archive
    The NHC's data archive has historical advisory data, Tropical Cyclone Reports, best track data, past track seasonal maps, forecast verification, reconnaissance data and more.
  • NHC Tropical Cyclone Climatology
    Lots of great graphical climatological data. Also check out the Tropical Cyclone Return Periods on that page and the graphics here.
  • Historical Hurricane tracks from NOAA
    This site allows you to view any past hurricane track using a viewer. You can zoom in on any storm track. A unique feature of this tool is the ability to enter your zip code to see what storms have passed near you. One very interesting feature is the ability to add all storm tracks on a single image, which of course makes things extremely crowded.
  • Unisys Weather: Hurricane/Tropical Data
    This site is great to easily lookup a past storm track.
  • HurricaneCity.com City Database
    This site lists what years tropical storms and hurricanes have affected various cities in its database. It lists how often a city is impacted on average and gives details about some of the more notable storms to hit the city.

  • Interactive Radar Map Tool from National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)
    "The Interactive Radar Map Tool shows supplemental data in support of NCEI's Weather Radar Archive. The tool includes several unique features that will allow the user to select data from 1995 to present for individual or multiple stations at varying altitudes. The map tool utilizes the Reflectivity Mosaics products and web services provided by the Iowa Environmental Mesonet. Reflectivity is available from 1995 to near-real time in five-minute increments."
