If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.

For the north Atlantic...Caribbean sea and the Gulf of Mexico...

1. Satellite images and surface observations indicate that the low pressure area between the northern coast of Honduras and Grand Cayman has become better organized today. An air force reconnaissance plane is currently approaching the system to determine if a tropical depression has formed. Regardless... upper-level winds are becoming more conducive for development and a tropical depression will likely form at any time later today or Saturday. There is a high chance...80 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. This system...accompanied by heavy rains and gusty winds...is forecast to move slowly toward the west-northwest and reach the Yucatan peninsula in a day or two.
