Thank you Kiko! 

Thanks to Tropical Storm Kiko, I was finally able to debug the wind field forecast plotting in the HWTropical 3 plugin.  HWTropical 3 uses data obtained from the forecast advisory product to generate the maps. The feature includes the ability to display the wind fields for each individual location or to have a forecast swath plotted. That data supports plotting forecasted wind fields at 34, 50 and 64 knot intervals.  I will be cleaning the code and adding support to the templates for including in HWTropical 3.0 Final.  Look for a release over the next day or two.

Below is a sample Wind Field Forecast map. Visit our tropics area for the latest image:
