Summary
Abstract: The Atlas of Extratropical Storm Tracks provides fundamental information about extratropical storm systems, including maps of storm frequency and intensity as well as plots of individual storms paths. Additional plots of the "most severe" storms are also available and are defined as the storms of maximum intensity within the selected time span. Maps are available as monthly and seasonal means for the years 1961 through 1998 in either global or hemispheric projections. The entire data set is available for download as well, along with a FORTRAN program for extracting time-specific and geographic-specific information. Together, the images and data presented here describe the state of the mid-latitude storm tracks during the last half of the 20th century.
