Weather Tidbits: Subtropical Cyclone

Another type of cyclone is checked out in this Weather Tidbits, the subtropical cyclone. A subtropical cyclone is a low pressure that has characteristics of both tropical and extratropical cyclones. Subtropical storms form where waters are at least 70°, with semi-organized storms building toward the center. They produce less rain than tropical cyclones and have a large, cloud-free center.
