was the first to bring you the diameter of the hurricane force and tropical storm force winds on our 2004 maps.  This year, these wind fields have been improved to show the exact dimensions of the forecast winds.  While not as visually appealing as the 2004 version, the 2005 version is more accurate.

According to the National Hurricane Center, an average of 75% of the total area of these storms is located to the North and East of the center of the storm.  Looking at the image below, you notice that most of this storm is offset to the upper right (North East) from the center of the storm.

The addition of the wind fields to our maps is important because when you view a close up land fall map, users can easily identify the forecast intensity of the sustained winds for a specific area. Wind Gusts in these areas may be higher.

Thank you for using  Come back often as we continue to refine our maps and add new products regularly.
