transitioning cyclone (encircled during extratropical stage) and the “L” the position of the downstream cyclone. Together with Part I , this review describes developments in our understanding of ET since the first ET review by Jones et al. (2003 , hereafter J2003 ). The review by J2003 was motivated by the challenges that ET typically poses to forecasters in terms of predicting the structural evolution of the transitioning cyclone itself, and the high-impact weather that might be associated with it

to surface weather that falls into the tail(s) of the respective local distribution (e.g., precipitation exceeding the 95th percentile). To the extent that weather events inherit predictability from larger-scale dynamical features such as RWPs ( Anthes et al. 1985 ), a better understanding of the RWPs may help to improve the weather forecast, and this is particularly relevant in case of extreme weather. An example is the episode in August 2002, when a quasi-stationary low pressure system over
