I just saw a satellite animation on The Weather Channel of the current Super Typhoon "Jelawat" and noticed the data came from CIMSS. So I went to
their site and thought it warranted a link thread here. Good stuff.

Here is a clickable thumbnail to preview a screenshot that I uploaded of their homepage:
There is, for those interested, a disclaimer at the bottom of their homepage which reads:
"Disclaimer : The tropical cyclone information displayed here is based on the latest NOAA and JTWC reports received here at CIMSS, and may or may
not be the most current forecast available from these official forecasting agencies. CIMSS provides this product for the general public's viewing,
but is not responsible for its ultimate use in the forecasting of tropical cyclones and/or the use of public watches/warnings. Concerned customers
should confirm these prognostications with official sources (see our links section)."
