), the upper levels of the TC were able to be analyzed more carefully. Black and Anthes (1971) were able to describe, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the flow around five TCs out to a radius of 1000 km from the storm center. They demonstrated, via Fourier analyses, that the outflow layer of an observed TC is very asymmetric. Qualitatively, they also showed that outflow is favored in jets emanating from the core of the storm. Merrill (1988a) provided a significant step forward in the

downshear right ( Merrill 1988a ). A number of studies ( Sadler 1976 , 1978 ; Merrill and Velden 1996 ) also found an association between TCs with multiple outflow channels and intensification. Additionally, Merrill and Velden (1996) found an increase in the height of the level of strongest outflow as well as an increase in the vertical depth of the outflow layer during the intensification of Super Typhoon Flo (1990). Their results show the equatorward outflow jet maximum to occur at a higher level

addition to the TCAs, other specific features that occur prior to RI include migration of the cloud shield upshear, a pronounced asymmetry in far-field WV imagery, upshear WV arcs, and downshear-left outflow jets, features that will be explored more thoroughly in future manuscripts. In “classic” TCs, most notably, these arcs do not exist, and this upshear–downshear asymmetry is not as pronounced. This study makes use of IR and WV satellite imagery, synoptic reanalysis data, and a TC statistical
