Re: 2013 Tropical Oddities

I think that the reason that Andrea continues to exist as a tropical cyclone is that it really was more of a Subtropical Storm and far more baroclinic in structure. I noticed that after landfall the central pressure went down from 993MB to 992MB based on analysis of surface data - that doesn't happen too often either. It looks like the NHC will complete the transition to an extratropical system on the next (21Z) advisory.
(Btw, summaries are fine in this Forum.)
