In popular culture, tropical cyclones have made several appearances in different types of media, including films, books, television, music, and A subtropical cyclone is a weather system that has some characteristics of a tropical cyclone and some characteristics of an extratropical cyclone. They can form in a wide band of latitudes, from the equator to 50°. Although subtropical storms rarely have hurricane-force winds, they may become tropical in nature as their cores warm.[191] From an operational standpoint, a tropical cyclone is usually not considered to become subtropical during its extratropical transition.[192]

In popular culture, tropical cyclones have made several appearances in different types of media, including films, books, television, music, and electronic games.[193] These media often portray tropical cyclones that are either entirely fictional or based on real events.[193] For example, George Rippey Stewart's Storm, a best-seller published in 1941, is thought to have influenced meteorologists on their decision to assign female names to Pacific tropical cyclones.[139] Another example is the hurricane in The Perfect Storm, which describes the sinking of the Andrea Gail by the 1991 Perfect Storm.[194] Hurricanes have been featured in parts of the plots of series such as The Simpsons, Invasion, Family Guy, Seinfeld, Dawson's Creek, Burn Notice and CSI: Miami.[193][195][196][197][198] The 2004 film The Day After Tomorrow includes several mentions of actual tropical cyclones and features fantastical "hurricane-like", albeit non-tropical, Arctic storms.[199][200]
