Here is your Hurricane MPH Hurricane development: 
  1. HURRICANE: The storm has winds of more than 73 mph.
  2. HURRICANE WATCH: Hurricane-force winds of more than 73 mph are possible within 36 hours.
  3. HURRICANE WARNING: Hurricane-force winds are possible within 24 hours.
  4. EYE: This is the hurricane’s roughly circular center area where the winds are comparatively lighter.
  5. TROPICAL DEPRESSION:Has evidence of closed wind circulation around a center with sustained winds from 20 to 33 knots (23 to 38 mph).
  6. TROPICAL STORM: Maximum sustained winds are from 34 to 63 knots (39 to 73 mph). The storm is named once it reaches tropical storm strength.
  7. TROPICAL WAVE: A kink or bend in the normally straight flow of surface air in the tropics which forms a low pressure trough, or pressure boundary, and showers and thunderstorms. Can develop into a tropical cyclone, i.e., a hurricane.
  8. LANDFALL: The place where the center of a storm intersects with land. Because the storm’s strongest winds are not in the center, an area can be greatly affected even if the storm doesn’t make landfall there.
