A hyperactive period of intense, extratropical cyclone development unfolded last month across the North Atlantic. A series of four winter storms, each generating hurricane force winds, developed in rapid succession. No minimum central pressure records were broken, but all four storms underwent rapid cyclogenesis or bombogenesis. One of the storms, Storm Dennis (named by the UK Met Office), attained the second lowest pressure reading behind Storm Braer in 1993. Three of these four cyclones managed to achieve remarkable pressures in the 920-930 mb range.
