Tropical Cyclone Advisory Graphic Examples
In 2017, the National Weather Service made changes to the appearance of the graphics accompanying tropical cyclone advisory packages. These changes were required for the NHC and CPHC to begin issuing forecasts and watches/warnings for potential tropical cyclones. A summary of these changes is available in NWS Public Information Statment 17-10.
New in 2018
The National Hurricane Center has proposed the that the arrival time of tropical-storm-force winds graphics transition to operational status for the 2018 hurricane season. Examples of these products are included in the table below.
Examples of all NHC GIS products, including the new Arrival Time of Tropical-Storm-Force Winds, are available on our GIS page (www.hurricanes.gov/gis).
