The storm track is in color, and is represented by the following:

* Cyan = Wave/Depression

* Yellow = Tropical Storm

* Red = Hurricane

A fifth color, bright blue OR bright blue/red is used to draw a final line at the end of the storm track. This line represents the National Hurricane Center's 12-72 hour forecast/outlook (blue/red). The blue portion of the blue/red line represents the NHC Forecasts and the red portion represents the NHC Outlooks

Finally, you should NOT depend on this page for timely Hurricane and Tropical Storm warnings (the net is never very timely), but should instead listen to the official National Weather Service broadcasts for storm watches, warnings and tracking information. Remember, this is the Net. Nothing here is real.
