A word on 3-day/5-day forecasts

- in the last few years, 3 day forecasts have become fairly accurate - the 2 day gap to the 5 day forecast is not so accurate - BEWARE! regardless storms can suddenly jog either side of their predicted course - Stay Alert and keep checking back ---

Main Index
A consistently accurate site, lots of data and fast loading graphics 
After selecting the storm of interest, click on Forecast Track for a great graphic


Institute for Astronomy -  University of Hawaii
Latest Atlantic Map This is the another one I always go to. 
Times are UT (which = GMT) which means Bahamas Time is 6 hours later. 
The solid line is where it's been, the dotted line is where it's going, speed is shown in the colour key.

Nice precise layout of the current storms


Sites with multiple models
Just because the major sites agree where it's going - you're not off the hook - look at some of the other computer models -   GO to the area under the big map, for the storm of interest, and click on "Computer Models".
