Summary:"The outward extent of wind moving around a hurricane is rarely uniform. The size of this wind firld is often skewed to the right side of the storm's forward progress. At the same time, the size of each tropical cyclone varies. One hurricane, while it may not be very powerful, could have a large wind field and be called a """"large"""" storm. But other storms could be very powerful but compact in size. With tropical cyclones, the National Hurricane Center issues a forecast/advisory four times daily that, among other things, provides the extent of various wind fields. These distance values are divided into quadrants and provide the user with a guide to size and severity of storms."
