Welcome to the Everything St. Maarten / St. Martin Hurricane Center.

Page heavily updated 9/22/17
This entire page is constantly updated during hurricane season, 24/7

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

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


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.

Information sources:


2017 Hurricane Names:

Arlene Bret Cindy Don Emily Franklin Gert Harvey Irma Jose Katia Lee Maria Nate Ophelia Philippe Rina Sean Tammy Vince Whitney

2018 Hurricane Names:

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.

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.
