No, as Chad had these made up when we were having a problem with personal forecasts being made on official maps, making the personal forecasts appear to be official forecasts when they really weren't. Since there is such a greater number of people making there own forecast for Atlantic storms than any other basin (at least on this board), the Atlantic is the only basin that was really necessary.

Since some people are begininning to post maps with scenarios of possible future storms I am going to sticky this for now.

Everyone needs to use these maps instead of altering any official agency maps for your use. Thanks for your cooperation.

You can use these to track storms in this area but save the image now while the image has no storms on it.

Nice job.

We'll be making some fresh new maps for Storm2k for the 2006 season. A little easier to read and more basins. Yep, we'll also make one for the entire Atlantic basin.

Save as bitmap and open up in Paint, or copy and paste. You can also use Photoshop (which is what I prefer).

I would lov to have Photoshop, but it's a little out of my price range for what I'd use it for.
