The Wobble Tracker consists of two colored lines; The blue line represents Lee’s past track, while the red line represents the forecasted track, according to the National Hurricane Center. Pay close attention to Lee’s eye on the satellite to determine if there is any wobble.
A wobble occurs when the center of Lee’s eye moves off of the colored lines. The hurricane symbol on the map merely represents the storm’s current intensity.
