Data Visualization: Stormpulse

While not intended as an official weather forecast, Stormpulse has a huge database of major storms and hurricanes since the 1850s.

Based on data from the National Hurricane Center, Satellite stations and Nasa, data of current and past storms is visualized and continuously updated. Additionally you can check the latest news and satellite images of the area where the storm is passing through.

Stormpulse also provides an API that enables web sites to embed the created maps / images within their pages for free. And news sites from ABC, CNN to Washington Post are using this service already.
