Do sting jets only occur with tropical cyclones transitioning to extra tropical or do they also occur with regular extra tropical storms too?
Regular extratropical cyclones too. Many of the damaging European Windstorms feature sting jets, and it is believed that most of the damage from the 1962 Columbus Day Storm was also from a sting jet. Sting jets also don't occur with every extratropical cyclone, just a few that develop the dynamics for it.
