Plain Language Summary: The effect of storm size on tropical cyclones (TCs) that undergo extratropical transition (ET) and its associated synoptic environment is investigated by comparing large (LA) and small (SM) TCs that undergo ET after the recurvature (ETR). The larger the storm size is, the larger the amplitude of the north–south meander of the westerly jet is, resulting in a more drastic asymmetric structural change of the TC.
