Mike’s weather page is a great outlet that keeps you posted on weather events and allows you to track them in real time so when there’s a catastrophe you can be ready. From coastal storms to tornadoes and more, Mike’s weather page tracks all types of storms. The site allows several different options to display weather; you can overlay various radars and atmospheric conditions, see reports from on the ground and get all the information you need to track weather in one place. Mike’s also has a Facebook page where you can follow all the big weather events.
Tropical Tidbits is another great free resource that allows you to track hurricanes off the coast. They offer several different analysis tools including satellite imagery, surface analysis, forecast models, seasonal analogs, and more, so you can review different versions of the data to find what you’re looking for.
The NOAA also offers essential storm and weather forecasting data. Check out the Storm Prediction Center from the NOAA or try the NOAA’s Climate Data Online Search.
