Specific Tropical System Historical Tracks

#1 Postby SoupBone » Mon Apr 04, 2016 1:54 pm

Good Afternoon All,

If I were trying to research historical tropical system tracks for systems that formed in the GoM or Bay of Campeche, then made landfall on the Gulf Coast, any idea how to narrow this type of information down? I also need it to be in a all in one chart format, like the spaghetti model look. Thanks!

While I don't know of any places where you can make a search for such variables (i.e. formed in Gulf of Mexico OR Bay of Campeche AND made landfall on the Gulf Coast), but there is a site where you can pinpoint a 1-200 nautical mile radius area and find storms that passed through that area (Does not work with Google Chrome). You can also refine the location search by changing the wind speed, month, pressure, and even ENSO variables.

Example below:

Thanks, I saw that, but I was looking more for animated cone of uncertainty archives. I can't even find standalone cone archives though. Any idea where those would be?

For storms since 2002, the National Hurricane Center hosts archives of cones of uncertainty at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2016/, though you'll have to navigate to the storm page, then click Graphics Archive, followed by the graphic of your choosing. I'm not sure where to find older cones of uncertainties, however.

As an example, here's a 3-day forecast cone for Hurricane Kyle back in 2002
