Yellow Star: The forecasted surface winds would be out of the Northwest as the flow behind the low is counter-clockwise. Green Star: Anyone that is forecasting for the green star would be looking at the winds coming from the South-Southeast just right ahead of the warm front of the low pressure system. Red...
