Abstract

A comparison was made between the extratropical transitions of eastern Pacific Hurricane Lester and the Atlantic Hurricane Andrew. The European center for medium ranger weather forecasts (ECMWF) uninitialized gridded analysis was used to examine evolution of Lester and Andrew. It was observed that the grids were obtained from National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) on a 1.125° latitude-longitude on 12 atmospheric pressures. The hheating associatedwith the outfloor of both Lester and Andrew aided the development of a large scale ridge, as reflected by the poleward extension of low potential velocity (PV) air, over the central United States.
