cyclone deepened rapidly east of Canada. Based on the operational experience at the Ocean Prediction Center, the case was typical of extratropical cyclones with strong surface winds caused by sting jets. An area of storm-force to hurricane-force sustained winds (50–64 kt, 26–33 m s −1 ) occurred within about 460 km to the east and south from the cyclone center at 0731 UTC 8 December, with a maximum of 75 kt (39 m s −1 ) ( Fig. 1 ). These 10-m ocean vector winds were derived from the National
