Comments on the influence of the downstream state on extratropical transition. Arguments surrounding the demise of Hurricane Earl off the east coast of the U.S.; Consideration of the storm that occurred during the decay of Hurricane Earl as a classic east coast cyclogenesis event due to the interaction of an upper-tropospheric PV anomaly with a strong baroclinic zone; Emphasis on the disconnection of Earl in the explosive cyclogenesis event and its subsequent track.
