Parameters[edit]

name Name of the storm, displayed on the top of the infobox
category Controls the background color of the infobox intensity fields. Use in combination with type to control the text displayed inside the intensity fields (see {{Hurricane status small}}). The table below shows some of the values the template can obtain:
Category Type
depression tropical depression
subtropical depression
storm tropical storm
subtropical storm
cat1 hurricane
typhoon (1-4)
super typhoon (4-5)
tropical cyclone
cat2
cat3
cat4
cat5
image Image displayed on the left side of the infobox. Usually a satellite view of the storm. File:Temporary cyclone north.svg is used as a placeholder if this parameter is empty.
image_width Width of the file included via image. 130px by default.
image_caption Caption of the file included via image. "Satellite image" by default.
track Image displayed on the left side of the infobox. Usually a forecast map of the storm. File:Temporary cyclone north.svg is used as a placeholder if this parameter is empty.
track_topcaption Used to include text above the file included via track. Not currently used.
track_width Width of the file included via track. 170px by default.
track_caption Caption of the file included via track. "Forecast map" by default.
AUScategory Used to input the Australian intensity classification into the "current storm information" row.
JMAtype Used to input the RSMC Tokyo intensity classification type into the "current storm information" row.
JMAcategory Used to input the RSMC Tokyo intensity classification into the "current storm information" row.
IMDtype Used to input the RSMC New Delhi intensity classification type into the "current storm information" row.

MFRtype Used to input the RSMC La Réunion intensity classification type into the "current storm information" row.
MFRcategory Used to input the RSMC La Réunion intensity classification into the "current storm information" row.
time Advisory time
location Position of the storm center. Give uncertainty if possible. Deprecated: Use lat, lon, distance_from, and within_units instead.
lat The latitude of the storm as displayed in the location field. This parameter is used to create a coordinate using {{Coord}}.
Example: 20.6|N converts to 20.6°N.
Remember: Always include the unnamed direction (N/S) parameter after the latitude. For example: 20.6|N
lon The longitude of the storm as displayed in the location field. This parameter is used to create a coordinate using {{Coord}}.
Example: 41.7|W converts to 41.7°W.
Remember: Always include the unnamed direction (E/W) parameter after the longitude. For example: 41.7|W
within_units The accuracy of the units displayed in the location field.
Example: 20 nm converts to ± 20 nm.
distance_from The distance the storm is from a certain city or island(s).
Example: About 1205 mi (1935 km) WNW of the Cape Verde Islands.

stormarticle Storm article containing the Current storm information section for the system. Do not include the #Current_storm_information anchor in the link; it is already added by the template. If absent, template assumes that the section is in the current article.
sectnum Used to disambiguate storms when there are multiple active storms being tracked in the same season article. For the second currently active storm, from top to bottom, set sectnum=2; for the third, sectnum=3, and so on. If absent, the template assumes there is only one #Current_storm_information anchor in the article.

Important: Do not add a line break between any of the lat and lon parameters, named or unnamed, as this may cause unexpected results. If you must, do something like this:

lat=20.6|N<!--
-->lon=41.7|W
