Constant pressure charts[edit]

Some explanation would be useful of the charts of pressure that are available at 850, 700, 500 and 250 hPa and how they vary from sea-level charts. JMcC 13:27, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Check last sentence, where it say wikipedia is wrong about everything. Pedrojoper (talk) 13:57, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Significant expansion and revamping[edit]

There was much missing within this article previously. Now, it's in much better shape. Once the low pressure area section is fully referenced, we can upgrade the article to C class. Thegreatdr (talk) 16:17, 24 November 2010 (UTC)

Prose is very good. Only one issue while reading, under Low pressure system in first paragraph a closing parentheses seems to be missing:

...within the Westerlies (a trough with large wavelength which extends through the (troposphere). Fixed

Fix this and the dead links and I'll pass the article.

Found/replaced 3 of the 4 dead links. As it turns out, former ref 10 wasn't necessary as the other refs, particularly the one now at #10, described it well enough on their own. The parenthesis problem has been fixed. Thegreatdr (talk) 06:08, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Looks good. I went ahead and fixed the red link that was under the High pressure section. I'll pass the article, good work!Lvi56 (talk) 06:39, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

What is the plain meaning of this sentence?[edit]

Try as I may, I cannot understand the point of the last sentence of the third introductory paragraph: "Tropical cyclones can form during any month of the year globally, but can occur in either the northern hemisphere or the southern hemisphere during November.[11]" The sentence appears to be trying to make a contrast, but since the northern and southern hemispheres combined constitute the entire surface of the earth, which is the same as "globally," nothing is being contrasted. In plain English, what is this sentence trying to say? Wikifan2744 (talk) 06:22, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
