Wasn’t it considered a Cat. 3 at its peak?
I haven’t found it on the hurricane maps. The Brazilian Navy now keeps the records of tropical storms in the area, but wind shear makes it impossible for another hurricane to happen. Also, hurricanes hitting Argentina is out of the question, since the winds here come predominantly from the mountain chains at the East, the deserts at the North, and Antarctica itself. Not to mention the cold waters. When I went to take a swim at the sea, it’s 12°C water.
There are extratropical cyclones that ocurr off the coasts of Norway and Iceland. Their formation is quite different from hurricanes, but they are cyclonic storms that can also form hurricane-strength winds and ocurr around low-pressure areas. They are quire common in Antarctica, too. In fact, if you use the site to watch the storms and turn it south, you can see the violent Antarctic weather. Several places have average winds of 60kmph.
