Climatology

of Caribbean Hurricanes

The climatology section consists of historical analyses of the past 150+ years, focusing on the Caribbean Islands. Over 1400 storm tracks* have been analyzed for 4 specific regions: Atlantic (=all storms), Eastern Caribbean, Western Caribbean and the Bahamas/Turks & Caicos region as well as for over 50 islands/locations:

There are several ways to navigate the 600+ pages in this section. Below is a 'clickable' bathymetry map which takes you a more detailed map of the region of interest where you can easily locate your island of interest. The quickest way though is to use list of regions and islands below the maps. From there you can select the first three sections (see above): map (island location map, only for regions), all (tracks of all storms), dec (tracks of all storms plotted per decade), peak (peak of the season) and 5yr (5 year analyses).

Tip: You can map all hurricane tracks with Google Earth using a KML file provided by guiWeather, or use a Google Maps interface at stormadvisory.org.
