Hurricane Season, 2005

As Tropical Depression Alpha wanders through the Caribbean -- that's right, we've made it through the 21 named storms, and are now on the Greek alphabet -- NASA has made available a movie of the 2005 Hurricane Season, up to the early days of Wilma. The MPEG video is notable for a couple of reasons: it's easy to see both the consistent patterns and abberations of this year's storms; and the satellite image has an overlay of orange to red in the parts of the ocean warm enough to strengthen tropical depressions into hurricanes.

Individual stills from the movie are available, as well.
