Todo[edit]

Little bit of cleanup and some clarifying, but all in all pretty solid. --♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 21:58, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Also, should central be capitalized? --♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 22:00, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
2006 Central Pacific cyclone redirects here, but if you think it should be capitalized I'll move the page. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 23:04, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
I just think it looks a little weird, personally, since I think that the first letter after the year should be capitalized. --♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 23:05, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
I moved it. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 23:09, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Is there any info on rainfall in Canada? The article should be properly formatted concern its units; it should be imperial (metric). That is, it should be 65 mph (105 km/h), with a non-breaking space in between (see this in the edit window). Knots and nmi should be avoided. I feel like there should be more storm history, but it might not be possible with such a storm. These things need to be cleaned up/clarified.

  • was one of the most unusual weather events of 2006 - that is a bit POV
  • Sub should be linked to subtropical, since some might not be confused when they read "sub"
  • the system had winds of 55 kts - were those winds measured, or was it estimated?
  • When did the storm pass near the buoy?
  • The Infobox says it dissipated November 3rd, but the SH doesn't say anything about how it died; this needs to be fixed
  • The Canadian Hurricane Center considered this to be an extratropical cyclone - I think it should be indicated that the CHC also included the storm in their 2006 hurricane season review.
  • Hence, if this system is considered a tropical or subtropical storm of the 2006 Pacific hurricane season, it is a completely unofficial one. - Given the rest of the article, the last clause should be toned down a bit. Perhaps say the storm is not officially considered a tropical or subtropical storm.

  • Changed to "an unusual...."
  • Expanded to subtropical
  • says they were estimated
  • date provided
  • The article says convection was...
  • The source indicated that it was from the CHC's annual review, but that was added anyway
  • Rephrased

What about the demise of the storm in the storm history (when and where did it make landfall?)? Non-breaking spaces are needed, and the units should be in mph and miles, not knots and nmi; metric units are also needed in parenthesis. At least, I think it should be imperial (metric in parenthesis), since it is in the NHC/CPHC area of jurisdiction. --♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 03:44, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Track problem?[edit]

There appears to be a problem with the track image for this storm; perhaps it misinterpreted some data points. Can someone create a new one? -- 143.85.199.242 (talk) 17:15, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

what is wrong with the track? YE Pacific Hurricane 17:23, 26 November 2012 (UTC)
Near the top of the track (around Oregon's latitude), the track begins to spazz far to the right, then heads left, then jumps to the right (look at the spaces between the data points). Is that how the actual cyclone behaved or am I missing something here? -- 143.85.199.242 (talk) 16:51, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
AFAIK Yes. Tracks for storms of subtropical origin can be odd sometimes. YE Pacific Hurricane 16:59, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
IDK, not that unusual though. I think something is afoul. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:29, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Merge?[edit]

This article has sort of floundered over the past few years. It was originally made in 2008, and it hasn't changed much since then. It'd be different if it was actually classified as a tropical cyclone, but as it wasn't, I'm not so sure it should exist as an article. The main point of the article seems to be on the debate of whether it was a TC or not, but that can be summed up in a sentence or two. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 17:59, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree. But I will oppose merging it with 2006 Pacific hurricane season (if anyone proposed that location) on the grounds that it is not an official tropical cyclone that year. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 01:54, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
While it may not be an official TC, i think it maybe worth chucking it into an other storms section and making it clear that it isnt recognised by CPHC.Jason Rees (talk) 02:12, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
I strongly oppose any type of merge. This storm is unique by itself, and its special nature (and especially the controversy of it) definitely warrants its own article. LightandDark2000 (talk) 22:43, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
