Welcome to WikiProject Weather's Non-tropical storms task force, a group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of non-tropical storms, including extratropical cyclones, winter storms, blizzards, nor'easters, and European windstorms. The project was first developed on December 23, 2007, as a daughter project of the WikiProject Meteorology and a sister project of WikiProject Tropical cyclones and WikiProject Severe weather. In 2021, the former project became a task force of WikiProject Weather, along with other weather-related WikiProjects.

In 2013, WxBot was created to assist the former project and other meteorology-related projects. As the bot runs through AutoWikiBrowser, only tasks that can be performed in AWB can be performed by the bot. Click here to make a request for the bot to perform a task.


Members of the Non-tropical storms task force are allowed to participate in the Tropical cyclones task force's award system; you can see it here. Also, we have our own barnstar, which is shown below. You can award anyone who contributed exceptionally to the articles under the task force's scope or contributed greatly to the task force using this: ((subst:The Extra-Tropical Cyclone Barnstar|1=Put your message here. ~~~~)). For the alternate version, you can use ((subst:The Extra-Tropical Cyclone Barnstar|1=Put your message here. ~~~~|2=alt)).
