This is the plotted data of every tropical cyclone man has recorded. There is no evidence of activity ever affecting Washington.

It was a very strange storm for a large number of reasons:

Cyclone Catarina

That storm hit the southern coast of Brazil in the state of Santa Catarina about 4 years ago on March 26th, 2004 as CAT1 Hurricane (Cyclone) with a well defined big eye, for a CAT 1 storm. The storm was then named Catarina after the brazilian state it made came ashore.

Note: Since this tropical entity developed in the southern Hemisphere, it's called a cyclone, which it would have been a hurricane if it was in the northern hemisphere in the Atlantic ocean,

QUOTE
The South Atlantic Hurricane developed from an extratropical cyclone that emerged off the coast of Brazil on the 20th. This nearly stationary non-tropical low pressure system acquired tropical characteristics and developed into a hurricane by the 26th. The hurricane made landfall along the southern coast of Brazil in the state of Santa Catarina just south of the resort town of Laguna early on the 28th. Maximum sustained winds were estimated between 120-130 km/hr (65 to 70 knots or 75 to 80 mph) with gusts to 155 km/hr (85 knots or 95 mph). The storm left at least three people dead and injured 38, while more than 2,000 were rendered homeless (Associated Press). This was the first documented hurricane in the South Atlantic Ocean since geostationary satellite records began in 1966.

I followed this storm over the news when it happened because i have family in Brazil and before i came to the US 12 years ago, i used to live in southeast Brazil in the state of Rio de Janeiro, to the NE of Santa Catarina, where the cyclone made landfall.

Notice that since the storm formed in the souther hemisphere, cyclone Catarina has a HIGH pressure rotation or a clockwise one, instead of the counter-clock wise rotation that hurricanes and extra-tropical lows have in the northern hemisphere.

Although it cause damage where in made landfall in Brazil, Catarina was a very neat cyclone. I'm sure it has been analyzed and studied a lot and would not be surprised if it became case-study in different meteorology schools.

Thanks.

And yes, i agree. It's pretty nice data and images about Catarina. It was so rare an event, that i do not think anyone else, even the most acclaimed meteorologists and tropical system experts, could answer your question.

99 % of the time we have tropical system becoming extra-tropical. The other 1% was cyclone Catarina, as it was a extra-tropical system that become tropical; a CAT1 cyclone with a large and well defined eye, which i do not recall seeing it happen in the north Atlantic ocean, GOM or Caribbean.

I read that it could be more frequent in the southern atlantic ocean to have more cyclones as the earth gets hotter and that environment gets more favorible whats next a cyclone to hit western africa?

I know this has nothing to do with Washington but why did Catarina have such a big eye!! What was so special as to give it that big of an eye!

Hi Guys,

Since this is not related to "Current Weather" I'm moving it to the Weather Questions forum. The Tropical Forum is a subdivision of the "Current Weather" forum for the purpose of discussing Current Tropical systems only.

Washington state has gotten many extratropical-tropical mergers from the West Pacific. We also had an unnamed subtropical storm near there 2 years ago...looked like a tiny hurricane. blink.gif
