Quote: http://flhurricane.bamffl.com/images/2011/sbstorm9/sbplot20110824-2059.gif This is as of 8pm if you look at the past trck I assume that yellow is BAMS green is BAMD and the orangish color is a mix between BAMS and the UKMET model This is what me and THEOTHERRICK are looking at and if you look back over the last couple of days it shows the colors of the models that were most accurately followed. Even as a CAT 1,2 and 3 storm or are we reading this wrong? IT just seems as of lately that it is startin to follow the UKMET model as you can see here.
Actually, I believe you are reading it wrong. The past track is not color coded the same as the model tracks. The past track is coded to show the measured strength of the storm. So in this case, the green is when it was a tropical storm, yellow is Cat 1, orange is Cat 2, red is Cat 3, etc. See this table for comparison: Irene history
