The Worldwide Tropical Storm Tracker

The UK Met Office has created a new Google Maps based application to monitor and forecast tropical cyclones around the world.

The application allows you to view worldwide cloud conditions and the locations of current cyclones. If you select a cyclone on the map you can view the cyclone's observed track and wind speeds recorded along the track.

As well as viewing current tropical storm conditions it is also possible to view historical storm information. For example you can view the track of the 2005 Hurricane Katrina.

I just love chasing storms! I find this UK Met Office to be highly useful if you're a tropical storm tracker geek like me lol
