Wow so now the Atlantic is counting these and other basins don't? Because they have recon?...
I thought subtropical storms are counted in all basins now. It's just they're more common in the Atlantic
Subtropical storms aren't counted for the other basins for some reason. JTWC nor JMA doesn't even count these for the world's most active basin. It's weird. More common in the Atlantic? Nope...It's just ignored as they aren't tropical...Not just here but worldwide.
I'm pretty sure they would in the EPAC too (but they never really happen). Might just be an NHC thing.
I bet if extratropical storms were counted there, the WPAC on average would probably still win out
