Eye (Hurricane)

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The eye of a hurricane is the relatively calm center that is more than one half surrounded by wall cloud. The winds are light, the skies are partly cloudy or even clear (the skies are usually free of rain) and radar depicts it as an echo-free area within the eye wall.[1]

The "eye of the storm" is often used as a metaphor for a calm break in a tempestuous situation, or to describe people who are able to remain calm when all about them others are losing their cool.
