Postby Martin » Wed Sep 29, 2010 11:19 am

Just curious if you could clue me in on this. Ive seen the NHC forecast extra tropical storms much further out than Nicole. Is there criteria for doing so?

No criteria, just a personal call after looking at all of the data.

Tropical / subtropical extratropical. Other than meteorologists, I would guess almost no one knows the difference between all of them. It's confusing. :huh:
