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 Storm:
If sustained wind speeds increase to at least 35 knots, a tropical depression is upgraded to a tropical storm. Surface wind speeds vary between 35 and 64 knots and the storm becomes more organized. Tropical storms resemble the appearance of hurricanes due to the intensified circulation.
