Re: Sent to Graveyard

From what Pasch told me, I'm inclined to believe it's the feature we were tracking in the immediate wake of Epsilon. I do know that he said it was another of those types of storms around the same time as Delta and Epsilon and I feel that it is the best candidate. Talking around the 10th of December, give or take a few days, with only a marginal life cycle -- 12 hours or so.

There's more on this feature in the Epsilon thread at http://flhurricane.com/cyclone/showflat.php?Cat=0&Number=64061&an=0&page=0#64061 -- look in the vicinity of post #100 & beyond in that thread. I remember noting that it made it about 85% of the way to classification with about a 12 hour span of doing something way back in early December, leading me to believe that this is the feature the guys at the NHC are talking about.

If Pasch hadn'tve said another tropical transition feature around the same time as Delta and Epsilon, I would've guessed the late June feature along the east coast from Cape Hatteras to DC. It may well have been a subtropical depression, but I don't imagine the NHC is going to fret too much over a depression as opposed to a storm. Just my hunch, though.
