Site of the Day: Stormpulse
It’s been a while since our last major storm — not counting the economic tempest that may ruin us all. Not to be a party-pooper, but we still have seven more weeks in this year’s hurricane season (which officially ends on Nov. 30). Stormpulse is a good place to track major storms forming in the Atlantic, using a mix of satellite imagery and forecast models and real-time data from a variety of sources, including the National Hurricane Center. Chances are we’ll see a few more named systems in 2008: they’ll take the names Nana, Omar, and Paloma. Still, I think we’re all hoping the season ended with Tropical Storm Marco, which made landfall near Vera Cruz, Mexico on October 6.
