What this study adds:
Tornadoes in tropical cyclones have large amounts of variability in their behavior from year to year and even through the lifetime of a single storm. While these tornadoes are weaker on average than those occurring in midlatitudes, they still pose a hazard that can bring potential harm. Previous studies have attempted to establish the relationship between tropical cyclone size and tornado production and behavior and concluded larger tropical cyclones will produce more tornadoes at a further distance from the storm center. However, these previous studies used an antiquated, highly subjective dataset and outer size metric to establish this relationship. Revisiting prior work, uses a less subjective, more reliable outer size metric from a modern outer size dataset to conduct a statistical analysis to determine the validity of the relationship. Our analysis show that tropical cyclone size was determined to not be a strong factor in determining either tornado radius or number. While outer size may not provide a direct influence on tornado behavior, a more extensive look at convective evolution in tropical cyclones would greatly benefit the field in future work.
