The NHC is proposing a minor change to the Saffir-Simpson scale. Conversion of speeds from knots to miles per hour can make a hurricane that is a Category 4 in knots be a category 3 in miles per hour.  This also happens near the 4/5 boundary.  The proposed change will make it so that a hurricane will be in the proper category regardless of the expression of speed.
