Average surface (10 meter elevation) wind speed fields of simulation, with color shading indicating wind speed. Average is for 4 hour period symmetrically bracketing nominal landfall time of 0000 UTC 30 October 2012. Barbs indicate simulated speed and direction of average wind speed at observation stations, with each full barb representing 10 m s-1 and a half barb indicating 5 m s-1. Red line is storm track per NHC.
