  • merge in smaller articles

the storms are levels What's the difference between a hurricane and cyclone?

Nostorm[edit]

As far as I am aware, the term nostorm is not corroborated by any secondary source. Does any one have more information on this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.239.234.204 (talk) 17:30, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

?[edit]

I wasn't sure how to deal with this topic. There's alot of storm articles floating around, but none general enough to warrant a redirect imo. Some Meterology buff familiar with wikipedia should take a look at these articles and work some kind of coherence into the list. I'm new to this, so please comment, I try to be bold in updating pages.

Can anyone help with weather related searches?

The Weather Channel's storm encyclopedia might be a good start. (^'-')^ Covington 06:33, 11 April 2006 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Hey I think that Freezing rain can be merged into this article. Please give me some feedback.ch 17:45, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Merged, maybe. Into Storm, no. If we want to do any merging, then we should take all the different articles on PRECIPITATION (including this one) and merge them together. I have no opinion, personally, on whether this merging should take place or not, but if it is done, then all precipitation articles (rain, snow, sleet, wintry showers, hail, graupel, and freezing rain) should be merged into one article on precipitation. Famartin 22:14 28 April 2006 UTC
ABSOLUTY AGAINST MOVING freezing rain article:
That article is about Freezing rain not Ice storms. Therefore it is about a type of precipitations. The same way RAIN and SNOW have their own article, freezing rain HAS to REMAIN on its own. As the writer above mentionned, only a merge of all types of precipitations together into the article Precipitation (meteorology) would be acceptable. However this would demand a lot of work and I personnally think that short articles on individual subject are better with reference to them in that article. Pierre_cb 2005-04-28 23:30 UTC.
AGAINST MERGE PROPOSAL
Freezing rain is a specific kind of weather. No reason whatsoever to merge it into the general topic.PDXblazers 03:18, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Merge Windstorm here[edit]

From Dutch?[edit]

This [1] page says that the german is Sturm and the dutch is Storm. Changing accordingly to Storm. If that's wrong, just change it. The Missing Piece 14:00, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Beaufort / Storm classification[edit]

"Storms measuring 10 on the Beaufort scale occur once every five years on average."

Maybe I don't understand the Beaufort Scale, but as I read it category 12 storms are Hurricanes. If this is true there are an average of 10 or 15 Hurricanes in the West Atlantic each year alone. I would assume the statement is based on the storm classification chart from Univ. of Virginia, which seems equally unclear. Storms of the varying intensity happen all the time not once every five or forty years. Could it be that this chart was meant for the Virginia region alone? or am I misreading/misunderstanding it? CRobey 00:22, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Content restructing[edit]

This article needs major work. For a start, the long-list-of-storm-types should be revised significantly. I think the list of storm types subsection should include (part of) the list from Cyclone, Monsoon, Blizzard, Thunderstorm, Dust storm and more. The 3rd lead paragraph makes no sense at all, as referred to above hurricanes are hardly as rare as that implys; and the classification table makes no sense; it has not been explained at all. Other sections - the cultural bit, non-terrestrial storms (should solar flares count?), a link to various precipitation types, information on wind and classifications (Beaufort Scale, Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale, Fujita scale…). A formation/structure section would be useful in theory, but with the disparate types of storms would not make much sense.--Nilfanion (talk) 21:56, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Great ideas. Let me know if you'd like a hand. (^'-')^ Covington 22:56, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Squall speeds[edit]

Note that there is discrepancy between squall speeds in the article vs. the squall entry. Quoting from this independent source:

"5.4 SQUALLS
A squall is defined as a sudden increase in wind speed by at least 3 stages of the Beaufort Scale (by 16 knots if facilities are available for measuring the wind speed), the speed rising to Force 6 (or 22 knots or more) and lasting for at least 1 minute then diminishing."

it would seem that the values in this article are OK but the ones in squall are not. Obviously consistency is needed. Someone? Crum375 19:06, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Actually now I see the speeds in squall are in mph while here they are in knots, so we are OK, except it would be nice to use the same units. And IMO knots are more correct for winds, at least in N.A. Crum375 21:27, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Major overhaul[edit]

Let me know how the overall of the Storm article worked. This article still needs more information, but I am unable to provide it. SuperCow 22:43, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Units[edit]

This article should primarily use meters per second as that's the SI unit used in measuring wind speeds. - G3, 21:07, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Age of Great Red Spot?[edit]

The text of this article says the Great Red Spot "...has been raging for at least 340 years,...". But the text of the Great Red Spot article says, "...has lasted for at least 177 years and possibly as long as 342 years or more...". These seem to be in conflict to me. Should the age in this article be adjusted to match that of the other article?

Is a storm always low pressure surrounded by high pressure?[edit]

the text states, "Storms are created when a center of low pressure develops, with a system of high pressure surrounding it.". It also claims the Great Red Spot is a storm. However the Great Red Spot is an Anticyclone (a high pressure system).

Typical(average) maximum and minimum duration of each type of storm?[edit]

could someone include the information about what is the average, what is the maximum recorded, the theoretical maximum, the minimum recorded and the theoretical minimum duration of each of the storm types please? (at least for storms happening on Earth)--TiagoTiago (talk) 18:29, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

This is not possible, sorry to say, since they are not that predictable.

Reorganization[edit]

I think I'm going to try that soon, plan is to divide the article's various storms by the extent of the affected area, or the size of the system (three categories: Individual, Meso-scale, and larger. Going to briefly mention also Tropical storms since they too are storms. Contributions/80.186.4.11 (talk) 17:48, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

We tried that in the severe weather article, with mixed results. Thegreatdr (talk) 19:29, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Norwegian interwiki[edit]

I would like to have the interwiki "[[no:Storm]]" changed for Norwegian. In Northern Europe the expression "Storm" is meaning just "Windstorm", as a scale classification of strength/intensity of wind. I have taken axtion in the Norwegian article, to change the interwiki for en:wiki to European Windstorm. So pls disable the Norwegian interwiki for storm from this article, and connect from the European Windstorm. --TorSch (talk) 18:02, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Missing sections[edit]

Detection and preparation are the sections that I see missing. If we had them, half of the wikilinks in the see also would disappear, because they would lie in the text of those sections. Thegreatdr (talk) 19:31, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Added a bit more content, which covers part of the problem. Thegreatdr (talk) 20:08, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposed merger[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to merge the two articles. Inks.LWC (talk) 18:30, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

I propose that Storm damage be merged with this article. I had redirected storm damage here, but the redirect was reverted, and there's nothing significant in the revised article that isn't mentioned in here. Inks.LWC (talk) 06:10, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Second that. Trigaranus (talk) 09:19, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Makes sense. No reason why someone looking for information on storm damage should be sent to an article with barely any (beyond a few facts and an anecdote) when there's a full page that covers much more on the subject right here.--Yaksar (let's chat) 04:48, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
The discussion above is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made on the appropriate discussion page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

Reviewer: ChrisGualtieri (talk · contribs) 18:29, 9 November 2014 (UTC)


The nominator does not seem to be a major contributor to the article's development and it seems that this article suffers from the same problems as Cloud. Ref 1, 2, 28, 29, 30, 34, 49, and 54 are all dead. The section "Notable storms in art and culture" is so poorly sourced and so poorly covered that it is required to be re-written. Many of the storm types, which should be explained, are not covered well and are not even sourced. There is an entire absence of the formation and details of how storm's are powered. Tropical cyclone would give some ideas on how to structure this article as well. I'll place it on hold, but this does not seem possible to fix in time. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 19:05, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

It's pretty clear that the drive-by nom isn't going to bother making the fixes, so I'll just fail this. Wizardman 03:36, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Yep. Failed. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 05:53, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Storm classification[edit]

"The east and northeast storms are noted for the most frequent repeatability and duration, especially during the cold period." I would guess that this is written in an american context and not a global one. However, I do not feel confident enough in my meteorology skills to remove the sentence myself. Gammew (talk) 18:59, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

  • You are correct, I'm sure that was a North American reference. I made the adjustment. Thank you. Pocketthis (talk) 19:41, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 11 August 2019[edit]

Fix up formatting in the "Types" section: standardize hyphens and dashes after each item, standardize capital letters at the beginning of each description, in the second sentence of the description of "Hypercane" I believe that there is a typo - "astroid" instead of "asteroid". 91.139.85.179 (talk) 23:07, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
