I’ve been visiting the National Hurricane Center and various other sites to get a view of what storms were in the Atlantic and where they were projected to go. I can say categorically that the MSNBC site is the most useful. That is due in large part to the fact that it is utterly simple and tells me exactly what I want to know:
- What storms are out there
- Where are they projected to go
- How strong are they now and will they be
Is it really, really accurate? No. But I don’t need it to be…
MSNBC… if you are listening – grant NOAA (which is where you get the underlying data that drives this tool anyway) a perpetual license to use for this and let them put it on the National Hurricane Center landing page.
