1. Introduction Extreme winds in extratropical cyclones often occur south of the surface low center (e.g., Lynott and Cramer 1966 ; Neiman et al. 1993 ; Grønås 1995 ; Steenburgh and Mass 1996 ; Nielsen and Sass 2003 ; Von Ahn et al. 2006 ; Chelton et al. 2006 ; Knox et al. 2011 ; Fox et al. 2012 ; Hanafin et al. 2012 ). Studying the United Kingdom's Great Storm of 15–16 October 1987, Browning (2004) coined the term sting jet to refer to one specific type of wind maximum in this

predicting movements of the North Atlantic jet to be ~1.0 at 1-day lead times. The strike probability depends on multiple scales of motion and can be associated with position uncertainties in the centers of large and perhaps fairly predictable features such as cyclones, and the existence uncertainty in smaller and perhaps inherently unpredictable features such as small kinks on frontal surfaces. The strike probability does not distinguish between these two paradigms with all features being reduced to a
