NHC Audio Briefings (Podcasts)






NHC Audio Briefings (Podcasts)




In an effort to provide users with additional information to
enhance planning and preparedness decisions, NHC provides
Audio Briefings (also called podcasts), when the media pool is
activated by the NHC Public Affairs Officer. In general, the
media pool is activated by NHC when a hurricane watch is
initiated for a portion of the United States coastline. The
audio briefings will provide the latest information regarding the
hurricane threat and its expected impacts.

When a current podcast is available, a link to the RSS/Podcast feed and a link to the corresponding directory with the latest
audio (mp3) file will be displayed. You can right-click and choose “save” to download the file.

Once the podcasts are older than 4 hours, they will not be shown on this page. If you have comments about this service,
please send us email or
complete a short survey.

NHC Data in GIS Formats






NHC Data in GIS Formats




Data & Products

Please note these GIS datasets are provided as a convenience to users. Support for these data may not always be available or timely in nature. For issues directly related to the datasets below, please contact us.

† Dataset in shapefile format only (delivered as a .zip file)

‡ Dataset in shapefile and kml/kmz formats

* Probabilistic Storm Surge is available when U.S. Hurricane Watches/Warnings are in effect

‡• Wind Speed Probabilities (WSP)

This dataset is available in shapefile and kml/kmz formats.

The wind speed probabilities data also can be found through the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) at the following locations:

Technical information on accessing and using NDFD elements can be found at https://graphical.weather.gov/docs/datamanagement.php.

Additional Resources

To see other National Weather Service data available in GIS formats, please visit www.weather.gov/gis.


The NOAA Ocean Service’s nowCOAST project provides real-time links to many of these GIS datasets via WMS.
More information on accessing these data is available here.

NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management maintains a detailed online interactive mapping tool called Historical Hurricane Tracks at coast.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/hurricanes.html. This tool offers users the ability to search and display global tropical cyclone data. The information can also be downloaded in widely-used GIS data formats.

When using the Historical Hurricane Tracks tool, the left side bar allows you to query storms by their location, name, year, etc. Search options can easily be refineed for the storm (or storms) that are of interest to the user. Please note that the Historical Hurricane Tracks interface will not contain data for the current season until the storms have had their entire datasets analyzed. For example, the 2011 season should be online by early 2012.

Another good source of vulnerability maps and GIS data is NOAA’s Digital Coast.
This website provides data required by coastal resource management professionals, as well as the tools, training, and information needed to turn these data into useful information.

  2. “9-day Weather Forecast” provides general indications of the trends in weather for the coming 9 days.
    For detailed description of today’s weather forecast, please refer to “Local Weather Forecast”.
  3. The accuracy of forecast generally decreases with forecast period. The average accuracy of weather forecast for the next one to three days, four to seven days, and eight to nine days are about 90%, 85% and 80% respectively.
  4. The accuracy of forecast also varies for different weather systems in different seasons. Generally speaking, weather in spring and summer such as fog, tropical cyclone and severe convective weather is more changeable, resulting in higher uncertainty of forecast.
