TCOTD – Typhoon Yvette – Oct. 11
1992 YVETTE 125 knots in the Western North Pacific
Typhoon Yvette wasn’t the most intense or deadliest. But it does hold the title for
the most uncertain. It has the largest differences in intensity from the various agencies that provide intensity estimates. So it is the most in need of reanalysis. Tat is why we have cyclone center. Look at the differences in intensity from the various agencies.
Also on this day is Typhoon Zack. Not as impressive (largely a sheared system?), but still a named tropical cyclone.
Happy Birthday, Zach.
