Hurricane Ophelia (2017)
Ophelia Point Forecast - Zoom Level 2 About This Map
About this map: Tropical Point forecasts are an interactive element which allows users to display forecasts along the official National Hurricane Center Forecast Track based on a specific time in the forecast. The map will plot the storms track as a dotted black line along with any wind field radii that are forecasted for the storm at that time. A dotted dark grey circle will represent the area of error that the forecast point falls with-in.

It is also important to realize that a tropical cyclone is not a point. Their effects can span many hundreds of miles from the center. Additionally, users are reminded that the forecast wind field radii represent the maximum possible extent of a given wind speed within particular quadrants around the tropical cyclone. As a result, not all locations falling within the shaded areas will be experiencing sustained winds of the indicated speed.
