Quoting 710. KoritheMan:
Pretty sure the scientific consensus agrees on 26F as being the minimum threshold. We've had major hurricanes develop over waters even cooler than the 27.8C made in that statement.
Highly misleading unless the consensus has made a drastic paradigm shift.
Quoting 752. Astrometeor:
I would be really shocked if a tropical cyclone formed at 26F.
Quoting 763. KoritheMan:
They can and do. They won't be the ones sporting the deep warm cores we see in cyclones forming in the deep tropics, but waters aren't everything. Lukewarm SSTs can work together with the cold upper troposphere over subtropical latitudes to generate instability.

Quoting 769. KoritheMan:
Wait... did I really say 26F? >_>
Quoting 776. KoritheMan:
Shh. My brother was just laughing at me when I pointed it out to him after I noticed it.
Shut up, Cody. lmao
