Subtropical Storm "Stephanie"
      #96968 - Thu Sep 15 2016 02:04 PM

A subtropical cyclone has formed in the extreme eastern Atlantic basin, now between northern Spain and France. This storm has been nicknamed "Stephanie," but may have formed just outside of the NHC area of responsibility, and it is not clear which Regional Specialized Meteorological Center is taking the lead here just yet.

Google Translation: The phenomenon of the day: a tropical cyclone, or like mesobaja resulting from the possible hybridization of the low pressure yesterday, it was in the bay of biscay. Details:

Stephanie is producing a large belt of tropical storm force winds. As can be seen in the ASCAT image below

Subtropical Storm Stephanie has been moved to "Other Storm Basins" after I was able to determine that RSMC La Reunion is taking responsibility for tracking this storm, which appears to be very tropical in the image provided below.

Google translation: Satellite Image METEOSAT10 on 15/09/2016 at 12:30 UTC : this is a particularly remarkable phenomenon that is taking place in the Bay of Biscay . Depression that wraps it has subtropical characteristics, namely a warm heart dominated by cold air at high altitudes . This causes a convective activity locally and stormy near the center of the depression, which is typical of tropical or subtropical process. Other convective clouds are present over a wide band from Britain to the Balkans.
