Hurricane Maria is being closely watched because her path, at least in the early stages, resembles that of Irma. However, Maria’s path, in some of the latest trackers and models, shows her veering to the north and missing the U.S. Maria is expected to become a hurricane by the end of Sunday.
It’s too soon to tell for sure, however, which direction the weather system will take. That has people following the latest storm closely.
What are some of the ways that you can track Tropical Storm Maria/Hurricane Maria in real time? Here are some of the best Maria trackers that you can use to follow the storm’s path:
National Hurricane Center & National Weather Service
These are the sites that the news media most heavily rely on. Here is the Center’s page for Tropical Storm Maria. You can track many different projections on the page, ranging from wind speeds to rainfall. See the storm’s forecast advisory here.
You can also search for any community in the U.S. in the National Weather Service page and get updated real-time maps for the weather in the area. For example, here’s Tampa. Just enter city, state or zip code in the top left box.
The Weather Channel
