With rrricanes you can access current and archived advisories as-issued from the National Hurricane Center archives. rrricanesdata is a complimentary data package meant to make it faster to get most data avialable from these storms.

Installing rrricanesdata is simple:

Data in rrricanesdata will be updated on the first of every month with a cutoff date of midnight on the last day of the month. So, advisories issued at any time during the current month will not be available; you will need to use any of rrricanes get_* functions.
