Sub-Tropical Cyclone

Sub-Tropical Cyclone

A sub-tropical cyclone is a non-frontal low-pressure system that has characteristics of both tropical and extratropical cyclones. Like tropical cyclones, they are non-frontal, synoptic-scale cyclones that originate over tropical or subtropical waters and have a closed surface wind circulation about a welldefined centre (WMO, 2017).
