Abstract

Stronger tropical depressions are associated with a recognizable vortical cloud pattern. This note summarizes the number and history of vortical cloud systems observed over the tropical Atlantic during the 1967 hurricane season. The appearance of a “vortical cloud” does not necessarily imply the depression will intensify.
