I am Alex Boreham. Back in 2018, I began developing this site as a place to display the satellite plots I had been making then, featuring old colortables that had fallen into disuse that year. With time, the library of plots I've made has greatly expanded, and this site has evolved into a source of various different tropical cyclone tracking plots. In 2022, with the help of generous donations, CyclonicWx was able to move to a new server where it is now.
I've always had a passion for meteorology, but interest in tropical cyclones began in 2016 when I began tracking them that summer. Thanks to this interest, I attended Florida State University's meteorology program and got a degree in meteorology in 2023.
Although I am a meteorologist now, my opinions on the tropics or weather in general are my own views and not that of any official entity, and should not be taken as such. For official information, please consult the National Hurricane Center.
