The NOAA National Hurricane Center (NHC) publishes advisory bulletins with named storm conditions and expectations, see [1]. We have also downloaded shapefiles for forty-three 5-day forecasts (published from August 17 to August 30) of track line, predicted points, ensemble forecasts envelope, and affected shoreline where applicable. NOAA also publishes the best track for major storms [3]. The "best track" is a smoothed version of the advisories track. Web services are also provided by NHC for the advisory points and lines [4] [5].
