The Best Hurricane Trackers
Dispatches and daily video from Hurricane expert Mark Sudduth. This website isn't pretty but the in-depth information is explained in layman's terms. No other site has the kind of detail and expert scientific explanations this site features. A true resource for the weather junkie.
MSNBC Hurricane Tracker
A beautifully designed storm tracker that is simple to understand yet showcases need-to-know details. And I know I said it before, but it's really beautiful but lacks a bit of the detail for those who need to know. For the Apple-centric set.
IbisEye is nicely designed and provides more interaction that the MSNBC tracker. It's integrated with Google Maps and features hurricane hotspots you can hover over to get detailed info such as predicted wind speed on a specific day at a specific geographic location. Also features the ability to switch with a click to satellite overlays. Both informative and cool.
