NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Stages of Development
from disturbance to hurricane
Tropical Depression:
If sustained winds increase to at least 20 knots, a disturbance is upgraded to a tropical depression. Surface wind speeds vary between 20 and 34 knots and a tropical depression has at least one closed isobar that accompanies a drop in pressure in the center of the storm.
