RE: Cyclonic storms near the South Pole?
You said :
« Because if it is real, I wonder why nobody ever talks about it »
Nobody talks about these storms because almost nobody is living in these latitudes. And there is almost no navigation during this season in this region.
You know that these storms are more frequent and stronger during the austral winter. It’s not a bug from weather models !
There are some famous sail races around the globe which cross these regions, but only during the austral summer. Same for the ships which bring supplies to research stations in Antarctica. Even in the good season the roaring forties and the furious fifties are very tough for sailors.
The Bureau of Meteorology of Australia (BOM) provide analysis and forecast for these regions.
The structure of these extratropical cyclones is different from the tropical cyclones. No they don’t have « a clear eye », just less wind in the center, along with other differences (core temperature, fronts system, dynamics linked to the jet stream...)
