Hello @m-c-a, in general, it is hard to forecast the exact path or intensity of cyclones.
You can read for on this here – https://community.windy.com/topic/3709/cyclone-debbie/2.¨
@m-c-a Hello, there is a difference between Wind accumulation (hurricane tracker) and other layers such as Wind and wind gusts.
As @Korina said, Hurricane tracker is based on Wind accumulation which is the maximum gusts predicted for several hours or several days.
As the Hurricane tracker is based on gusts, it is different from the the Wind layer which shows the average wind.
