ZyGRIB not Displaying Hurricane?

I'm finding it rather odd the cat 5 hurricane SW of Mexico is not displayed accurately in the GRIB files from NOAA; the hurricane symbol is not used, there isn't any sort of warning and it appears to display a maximum of 8 bf in the area? Nice bit of daysailing I guess

I wonder if they're mistakenly still showing a trend forcast?

"What the boat wants, the boat gets"

"If one does not know to which port is sailing, no wind is favorable."
