WEBCETERA: WHERE THE LATEST WEATHER IS

0

Aug. 17, 2001 – At this time of year, it makes a lot of sense to share some weather and hurricane-tracking resources available on the Internet. Here are some of my favorites:
Sign up for NOAA – Tropical Storm. This provides updates via e-mail. But be warned: When a storm is out there, this service can fill your inbox fast.
Here's where to access the official National Hurricane Center Tropical Storm Center advisories. The NOAA Tropical Storm Graphics are what get e-mailed to you.
Go Navy! Navy Tropical Cyclone Information. Hope for no touchdowns, of course.
Intellicast provides weather and storm survival tips.
The CNN Storm Center is another good mainstream resource.
The gobeach.com Caribbean Hurricane Network provides both the weather and local reports from the islands.
For some time, the forecasts of William Gray and his team have been among the best indicators of hurricanes to come.
For everyday local weather, one of the best web sources is at CaribWX, which is based in the British Virgin Islands. I particularly like their discussions.
Last, but certainly not least, the University of the Virgin Islands Water Resources Research Institute Weather Center provides an online weather station. You'll find it at WRRIweathercenter.
There are a number of other online weather sources out there. Please let me know your favorites!
