Saffir-Simpson Scale

The chart color codes intensity (category based on Saffir-Simpson scale):

Type Category Pressure(mb) Winds
(knots)
Winds
(mph)
Line Color
Depression TD ----- < 34 < 39 Green
Tropical Storm TS ----- 34-63 39-73 Yellow
Hurricane 1 > 980 64-82 74-95 Red
Hurricane 2 965-980 83-95 96-110 Light Red
Hurricane 3 945-965 96-112 111-130 Magenta
Hurricane 4 920-945 113-135 131-155 Light Magenta
Hurricane 5 < 920 >135 >155 White

NOTE: Pressures are in millibars and winds are in knots where one knot is equal to 1.15 mph

NOTE:The Atlantic Tracks File is an ASCII (text) file containing the 6-hourly (0000, 0600, 1200, 1800 UTC) center locations (latitude and longitude in tenths of degrees) and intensities (maximum 1-minute surface wind speeds in knots and minimum central pressures in millibars) for all Tropical Storms and Hurricanes from 1851 through 2002. More information on this file is found in NOAA Technical Memorandum NWS NHC 22 "A Tropical Cyclone Data Tape for the North Atlantic Basin, 1886-1983: Contents, Limitations, and Uses" by Brian R. Jarvinen, Charles J. Neumann, and Mary A. S. Davis.
