NHC Public Advisory Wind Speeds?
      #10654 - Mon Sep 01 2003 01:35 PM

Dear CFHC,

I was wondering the other day about the NHC reported sustained winds in their advisories.

As NOAA is goverment-run (as far as I'm aware), does anybody know if the reported sustained winds contained in a public advisory are slightly higher than are actually being reported - erring on the side of caution for safety's sake?

Thanks from the UK for an excellent site by the way
Richard
