If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.

Tropical Storm Ernesto has almost passed over Cuba. Ernesto is moving northwest at 13mph with maximum sustained winds still at 40mph. The NHC have cooled their 3 day forecast somewhat.

27th August, 2006 11:00 News Update

Hurricane Ernesto is moving towards the northwest at 9mph with winds of 75mph. The NHC track now looks more northerly than previously, which will take it on a track that almost parallels the west Florida coastline, putting the coast on the clean side. This will obviously have more of an impact, and also affect more areas than a straight-across path. Floridians need to take care with this one..

Moving west-northwest at 16mph with winds of 40mph, Ernesto is expected to become this year's first hurricane by 1400edt on Monday. Watch this one...


I shall continue to update the tracking maps until Hurricane Ernesto dies.
I can be found in the central Florida hurricane center forum until the end of November.
