About National Hurricane Center Data

Developer Description

* NOAA Hurricane Tracking and Forecast Data * MAIN FEATURES INCLUDE: * NHC GOES-16 Satellite Imagery * 5-day Hurricane Forecast / Tracker * Spaghetti Models! * 5-day Tropical Storm Outlook (Pacific) * 5-day Tropical Storm Outlook (Atlantic) * 5-day Tropical Storm Outlook (Central Pacific) * 2-week Tropical Storm Outlook (Global) * NWS Tropical Weather Discussion * Storm Specific Forecast & Public Advisories * Wind History, Rainfall Forecast & Flash Flood Risk Graphics * New Storm Push Notifications By far the fastest, most convenient way to access National Hurricane Center data. The app displays detailed satellite imagery animations, allowing you to track the storm using the most recent observations. More satellite filter details below: -- Band 2 -- 0.64 µm - 'Red' Band - 0.5 km resolution - Visible band 2 is in the red portion of the spectrum and has the highest resolution of any ABI band at 0.5 km, and for that reason is the primary visible band. It is used primarily to monitor the evolution of clouds throughout the daylight hours. -- Band 4 -- 1.37 µm - 'Cirrus' Band - 2 km resolution - Band 4 will detect very thin cirrus clouds during the day. This band is centered in a strong water vapor absorption spectral region. It does not routinely sense the lower troposphere, where there is substantial water vapor, and thus provides excellent daytime sensitivity to high, very thin cirrus under most circumstances. -- Band 5 -- 1.6 µm - 'Snow/Ice' Band - 1 km resolution - During the day band 5 can be used to differentiate ice clouds and snow (relatively dark) from liquid water clouds (relatively bright), such as fog and stratus. It can also detect very hot fires both day and night. -- Band 7 -- 3.9 µm - 'Shortwave Window' Band - 2 km resolution - Band 7 has a variety of applications, including fire detection, cloud particle size retrievals, and differentiating between liquid water and ice clouds. Fire hot spots will show up as relatively small dark gray to black pixels. GOES-16 band 7 corresponds approximately to the old GOES-13 infrared channel. -- Band 8 / 9 / 10 -- 6.2 µm - 'Water Vapor' Bands - Band 8 will be used for upper-level tropospheric water vapor tracking, jet stream identification, hurricane track forecasting, mid-latitude storm forecasting, severe weather analysis, upper mid-level moisture estimation (for legacy vertical moisture profiles) and turbulence detection. The imager on GOES-16 features three mid-level water vapor bands instead of the single water vapor band on the GOES-13 Imager. The single water vapor band on GOES-13 contained a mixture of water vapor features over many levels of the troposphere, but GOES-16 enables us to focus on water vapor in the upper troposphere (band 8), the middle troposphere (band 9), or the lower troposphere (band 10). -- Band 13 -- 10.3 µm - 'Clean' Longwave IR Window Band - Band 13 at 10.3 µm is an infrared window, meaning it is not strongly affected by atmospheric water vapor. This channel is useful for detecting clouds all times of day and night and is particularly useful in retrievals of cloud top height. -- Band 14 -- 11.2 µm - IR Longwave Window Band - the traditional longwave infrared window band, is used to diagnose discrete clouds and organized features for general weather forecasting, analysis, and broadcasting applications. Observations from this IR window channel characterize atmospheric processes associated with extratropical cyclones and also in single thunderstorms and convective complexes. -- GEOCOLOR Band -- Geocolor is a multispectral product composed of True Color during the daytime, and an Infrared product that uses bands 7 and 13 at night. During the day, the imagery looks approximately as it would appear when viewed with human eyes from space. At night, the blue colors represent liquid water clouds such as fog and stratus, while gray to white indicate higher ice clouds, and the city lights come from a static database.

App Reviews

  • App is getting better all the time.

    By Craig in FL
    I wrote an earlier review that was less than positive. Soon after I was contacted by the developer. He is working hard to make this app one of the most useful hurricane tracking apps available. One update has been added; another is on the way which allows users to keep informed with potential storm developments. We’ll check back here again when there is a named storm. Thanks for the improvements. The developer’s willingness to listen constructively is an added bonus! Go to Settings and find a direct link to the National Hurricane Center website. This is a real plus. This app just keeps getting better.
  • Category??

    By Metallica realist
    I wish there was one update shot that is brief with just a few facts. Hard time finding the Category info and actual real-time data such as, what did the Hurricane hunter find for wind speed, at what time? Yes I know they only update a few times of day. Did the speed increase or decrease since last measure, did movement speed increase or decrease? Just a few quick details on a single screen would be extremely useful instead of having to go through pages of data. Everything else is plentiful. Maybe it is there and I am just looking in the wrong spot.
  • very nice, but...

    By suecqueue
    I really like this app, and it is the only one that shows me all the map and charts I want. Love the spaghetti map, which is hard to find online. The only problem is that after a few uses, it disables any touch commands on my iPad Mini4 and locks my iPad Air 2 in portrait mode without having the locked mode show up in the command panel or settings. For both problems, only a hard reboot will let me use the iPad again. I have seen this before in apps that only offer portrait view on iPads, and really hope that a landscape view will be a forthcoming improvement and bug fix.
  • Wow

    By sorry4ever
    8/5/18 Just installed this. I now have three of this developers' apps. I like them all, but so far I like this one the best because it's got some great satellite imagery. You have to explore all the app has to offer because, at first glance, you may miss some important features. This goes for the other apps too. Now what I need to do is to learn more about weather so that I can have a better understanding of what's going on around the planet. This app will come in very handy during the winter months here in the Northeast and more. Thank you, developers!
  • Let us search by city name

    By reviewjw
    I’m not finding the app to be intuitive enough. Most of us care first and foremost for our current location. Let us put a pin on our location address, then give us the data for that location, such as where are we in terms of sea level (calculate surges for our location), wind speeds at our location, etc. These maps seem too general and when I tried the GOES 16 it just looked like a scene of swirls But thank you for making an app. With no TV at home it’s still useful
  • Most responsive developer!

    By girto
    I was surprised to see that the app did not support Central Pacific region. I emailed developer on Monday with request for Central Pacific region coverage. He wrote back the same day and indicated that he would add it. On Wednesday (today), I was able to download an updated version with coverage for Central Pacific region as well as ability to track unnamed storms, like that one that is passing below Hawaii today! Wow! Thank you for your incredible responsiveness and desire to improve your app!
  • Add Forecast Discussion and Advisory Text?

    By Heantune
    Can you add buttons to link to the text details from NHC forecast advisories and discussions, and public advisories - for each of the current storms? That would make this the 5 star must have app for hurricanes!! Update: a few hours later the text advisories and discussions are in an app update. 5 stars now. Update: 8/9. I would give this app 6 stars. It just keeps getting better!!
  • THE Hurricane App

    By tom31410
    NOAA and the National Hurricane Center do a great job providing hurricane information to the public online. Unfortunately, they do not provide an app with that information. This app fills that need. It takes all that online information and puts it into an app that allows for intuitive access in a pleasant GUI. Explore the app and you'll find all the hurricane information you are looking for!
  • Great app!!!

    By hurricane tracker 18
    This app is great if you love tracking strong storms/hurricanes, earlier this week I contacted the developer asking if it was possible for the n day update to contain spaghetti models and sure enough the developer did!! There is a lot of great tools this app offers. There are no lags/freezes when I use the app. Stay safe everyone and thank you for creating this app.
  • Much Improved

    By Haglogas
    Several months ago I gave this app a one star review because it didn’t give the information for which I was looking. It has now been updated and is a very useful tool. I highly recommend this app if you live in “Hurricane Country”.
