Weather Center / SXM Hurricane Information Center

Welcome to the Everything St. Maarten / St. Martin / SXM Weather Center

Page features updated 9/23/21 740am EDT
This entire page is constantly & automatically updated during hurricane season, 24/7

NOTE: We have stretched the boundaries of this page to bring you larger images.

Many current maps and satellite images follow on this continuously updated page. Here are some highlights:

  • FEMA instruction on hurricane preparedness
  • Please excuse the odd appearance of this page. We stretched it to enable you to see rather large images.
  • Download the NHC's Official Hurricane Chart:
    The exact charts used by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are available for download from the NHC here. Select "Atlantic" and you're good to go. You can print out the chart and use it repeatedly, or simply print a bunch of them and use one for each storm that may approach an area of interest -- like, SXM. Bear in mind that this hurricane season may well be frontloaded — so you might want to print a few of these now and not save doing that for later.

Brief Introduction:

This page gives you a number of still radar images and radar loops (below), and it now directly publishes forecasts
from the National Hurricane Center. Be aware, however, that if a storm is approaching your area, never rely on any
website as your primary source of information. Always heed advisories from local authorities.
This website is for informational purposes only.

2021 Hurricane Names: Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny, Elsa, Fred, Grace, Henri, Ida, Julian, Kate, Larry, Mindy, Nicholas, Odette, Peter, Rose, Sam, Teresa, Victor, Wanda. If this list is exhaused, the National Hurricane Center will issue a new list. It will NOT use the Greek alphabet as it has in recent years for additional storms.

Names will change to boldface as named storms form. The 2021 hurricane season begins June 1 and ends November 30, but the NHC will start issuingh tropical weather updates on May 15 since in recent years storms have been forming earlier.

More on hurricane names is here.

CURRENT SXM AND US- RELATED SATELLITE IMAGES

**********************************************

Current Weather Images: All maps are satellite images, updated as frequently as every half hour, courtesy of NOAA unless otherwise noted. 
If you see no images, the NOAA server is down.

IMPORTANT! If you come back in a couple of hours to recheck these images to see where storms are moving (and how fast), when
the image loads check the upper left corner. It tells you the date and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) of the image (time + Zulu, indicating
GMT). If the time hasn't changed since you last viewed the image, click your browser's REFRESH button. Then you'll get the new image.
(In the name of efficiency, browsers store files -- even ones which update around the clock.)

Again, if an image fails to appear here, the weather site is down.

Storms Crossing Africa East to West . . .

During the Cape Verde Season (mid August to mid October),  Significant Atlantic Tropical Waves Are Born Here

Image may not appear

 


 

Tropical Waves Exiting the African Coast

During the "Cape Verde" (NHC now calls it Cabo Verde) season from August through mid October, this is where storms threatening SXM usually come from. Waves move east to
west just north of the "Intertropical Convergence Zone" (ITCZ). Focus on storms between 10 and 20 degrees north.... Starting in late July, "shearing"
winds over the tropical Atlantic begin to diminish, heralding the beginning of the Cape Verde season. Its peak is September. Satellite photos update constantly.


 

Atlantic Basin Water Vapor Imagery

Why is this significant? Storms encountering dry air tend to lose strength; those traveling in moist air can maintain or gain strength, depending on other conditions.
