- Eye of the Storm
The roughly circular area of fairly light winds found at the centre of a hurricane and surrounded by the eyewall. Within the eye, the skies are often clear, despite the fact that winds and clouds continue to rage around the edge of the eye in the eyewall. The diameter of a hurricane eye can range from 10 km to more than 100 km.
