Abstract

The cyclonic storm frequency exhibits variations of different time scales. A study has been undertaken to examine the relation between the cyclonic storms and the equatorial lower stratospheric zonal wind oscillation (QBO). There exists a weak but significant relation between the mean zonal westerly winds (westerly phases of the QBO) and the frequency of cyclonic storms (Correlation between frequency of storms and westerly phase of QBO = 0.38 significant at less than 5 per cent level).
