Hola, aloha: Stormpulse expands to the Pacific basin

Please note: the full-screen view and the Stormpulse API do not yet work for the Pacific basin.  We are working to resolve this in the near future.  Update: Our embeddable maps now work for the Pacific basin.  Our API instructions have been updated to show you how.

One of the most popular requests we received last year was for us to broaden our coverage from the Atlantic to the Pacific basin.

So, after rolling up our sleeves in the off-season, we quietly launched our coverage of the Eastern Pacific basin on May 15th (coinciding with the 1st day of the Eastern Pacific season).

Stormpulse Eastern Pacific basin coverage

We’ve added storm information back to 1949, buoy reports, wind probabilities, and satellite imagery.  Something we don’t have yet: forecast/spaghetti models.  Our source for the Atlantic spaghetti models (the South Florida Water Management District) does not provide this data, so we’re looking for a source.  If you know where we can get fairly clean text data for model tracks in the Eastern Pacific, let us know!

Additionally, you can get automatic updates on changes in Eastern Pacific Basin storms via our Stormpulse Pacific twitter account: @stormpulsepac.

Hope all of your out west and out in the big blue sea find this helpful.  Send us your feedback when you get a chance (and let us know where can find spaghetti model info if you happen to know!).

    Excellent! This really is the best-looking weather site I’ve seen, and now it’s one step closer to perfect!

    How do i add pacific storms to my map on my personal website?

      @adrian Unfortunately the Pacific basin is not yet available through the API/embeddable maps. We hope to resolve the few remaining issues very soon. In the meantime, sorry for the delay!

    Wasn’t one of my request but, I find it fun and exciting to be able to track the Pacific. Sites often poll their users asking for desires and recommendations and, that’s the last you ever hear about it. Thank you for this significant addition — obviously, a major undertaking.
