Editors' Review

+
This user-friendly application provides basic information about hurricanes both past and present. When you launch Hurricane Watch, you'll see a map that's centered on the East Coast of the United States, though you can zoom in to see specific states or out to view the entire planet. A toolbar helps you navigate the globe, but you'll do most of your important work via the FindStorms menu item. Once there, you'll locate hurricanes by specifying different criteria, including wind speed, location, month, and year. Then you simply select the storm you want to learn about, and the application will map it for you, displaying its path and wind speed at various times. You will find a few tools for customizing the appearance of the interface, including one that lets you add your own locations to the map. Science buffs, storm chasers, and users with an interest in meteorology are bound to find Hurricane Watch a valuable resource.

"not to easy to navigate, but ok over-all"

August 16, 2009  |  By kncerdoc

 |  Version: Hurricane Watch 2.4

Pros

Free, ok graphics. Can be customized to your preferences. once you master the quirks it becomes pretty straight forward.

Cons

Takes a while to get info you are interested in. No user instruction. It took a while of trial and error to get the information of the latest storms and the relationship to my home town. Does not have a predicted storm path feature.

Summary

easy to use once you get it customized, you must manually update the latest data, no screen saver capability, no storm path prediction capability. But it's free.
