Typhoon's path

This image shows the predicted path of Typhoon 23.


On the chart there are three important pieces of data. The first is the past typhoon track, which is shown as a solid line.

The second is its current position, which includes central pressure, maximum sustained winds and gusts, current movement, and size and intensity.

The third is the forecasted movement for the typhoon. The forecasted track not only shows the expected movement of the typhoon, but also shows a circle. The winds within this circle are at speeds of 25 m/s or greater.

Anything that falls within this circle has at least a 60% chance of experiencing these winds.
