[3], The Australian region is currently defined as being between 90°E and 160°E and is monitored by five different warning centres during the season that runs from 1 November to 30 April. [4], The Northwestern sub-region encompasses the area east of 105°E, west of 130°E and north of 25°S. Reasonator; PetScan; Scholia; Statistics; Search depicted; Subcategories. The Australian region between 90°E and 160°E is officially monitored by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, the Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics, and the Papua New Guinea National Weather Service and, while others like the Fiji Meteorological Service and the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also monitor the basin.

The next 12 names on the naming list are listed below: The tropical cyclone warning centre in Jakarta monitors tropical cyclones from the Equator to 11°S, between the longitudes 90°E and 145°E. Most visited articles. The 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season is the period of the year when tropical cyclones form in the Southern Indian Ocean and Pacific Oceans between 90°E and 160°E. [4], The Southwest Pacific Tropical Cyclone Outlook covered a portion of the Australian region that comprised waters surrounding Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, the Coral Sea, and the northern Tasman Sea including Norfolk Island. The regional tropical cyclone operational plan defines a "tropical cyclone year" separately from a "tropical cyclone season"; the "tropical cyclone year" began on 1 July 1988 and ended on 30 June 1989. The sub-region averages five tropical cyclones in a season, and the bureau assesses the sub-region to have a moderate level of accuracy when forecasting tropical cyclone activity. The outlook took into account the ENSO neutral conditions that had been observed across the Pacific and analogue se… They also predicted that the Western and Northwestern sub-regions both had a 63% chance of experiencing more tropical cyclones than usual, the Northern region had a 57% chance of above average activity, and the Eastern region had a 67% chance of more tropical cyclones than the average. [24] A total of 23.6 mm (0.93 in) of rainfall was also recorded on 24–28 November. During the season, tropical cyclones will be officially monitored by one of the three tropical cyclone warning centres (TCWC… 278,219 Pages. Lord Howe Island lies within the region, but Norfolk Island lies east of the region, although the bureau continues to monitor tropical cyclones when they are a threat to the external territory. Read the detailed post cyclone reports for Australian cyclones dating back to 1970. [79] The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) classified the system as a tropical low by 06:00 UTC the following day while it was located near the Tiwi Islands, and assigned the identifier code 03U. The season officially ran from November 1, 2022 to April 30, 2023, however a tropical cyclone could form at any time between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 and would count towards the season total. Australien (amtlicher deutscher Name; englisch Commonwealth of Australia, deutsch veraltet Australischer Bund) ist ein Staat auf der Südhalbkugel der Erde, der die gesamte Landmasse des australischen Kontinents, die ihr südlich vorgelagerte Insel Tasmanien, die subantarktische Macquarieinsel mit ihren Nebeninseln und als Außengebiete die pazifische Norfolkinsel, die … Additionally, it is also the deadliest tropical cyclone season recorded in the Australian region, with Cyclone Flores killing an estimated 1,650 people alone, making Flores the single-deadliest tropical cyclone recorded in the entire Southern Hemisphere. List of Australian region cyclones before 1940. [59] Maximum wind gust speeds recorded on the mainland included 67 km/h (42 mph) at Port Hedland;[60] 65 km/h (40 mph) in Warburton;[61] 63 km/h (39 mph) at Lombadina;[62] 61 km/h (38 mph) at Giles and Telfer,[63][64] 59 km/h (37 mph) at Christmas Creek;[65] 56 km/h (35 mph) at Broome, Curtin, Derby and Barimunya,[66][67][68][69] 54 km/h (34 mph) at Karratha and Marble Bar;[70][71] 52 km/h (32 mph) at Roebourne;[72] and 50 km/h (31 mph) at Mandora. [14][15] The system encountered somewhat weaker wind shear along its new track, allowing deep convection to develop closer to the low-level circulation centre. [12] Despite this, the system remained mostly disorganised in the marginal environment, with an elongated low-level circulation centre. Maximum 10-minute sustained winds of 57 km/h (35 mph) with a gust to 72 km/h (45 mph) were observed on Browse Island,[91] and Adele Island recorded sustained winds of 54 km/h (34 mph) with a gust to 69 km/h (43 mph). [52] The tropical low made landfall on the Kimberley coast between Bidyadanga and the Anna Plains cattle station just after 00:00 UTC on 9 December. Ahead of the cyclone season, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), the New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)and various other Pacific Meteorological services, all contributed towards the Island Climate Update tropical cyclone outlook that was released during October 2019. [1] Within the Southern Hemisphere there are officially three areas where tropical cyclones develop on a regular basis, these areas are the South-West Indian Ocean between Africa and 90°E, the Australian region between 90°E and 160°E and the South Pacific basin between 160°E and 120°W. [45] The weakening tropical low was last mentioned by the BOM at around 08:00 UTC on 12 December, while located in the southeastern corner of Western Australia. [10] The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) assessed environmental conditions as being only marginally conducive for tropical cyclogenesis, with good poleward outflow and sea surface temperatures near 30 °C (86 °F) being offset by the effects of moderate vertical wind shear. An Australian region tropical cyclone is a non-frontal, low pressure system that has developed, within an environment of warm sea surface temperatures and little vertical wind shear aloft in either the Southern Indian Ocean or the South Pacific Ocean. [19] Satellite scatterometer data revealed maximum sustained winds of approximately 45 km/h (30 mph) at 02:30 UTC on 30 November, a few hours prior to the system exiting the Australian region. Number of tropical lows and tropical cyclones excludes Tropical Cyclone Raquel, which was considered to have been a part of the 2014-15 year. [47][48] Initially lacking organised deep convection, the system proceeded to track in a generally southwards direction towards the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The most active month was December 2018, with a total of seven tropical lows existing in the region at some … [42] Despite these wind readings, the BOM did not classify the low as a Category 1 tropical cyclone because they determined that gale-force winds did not extend more than halfway around the centre. The 1972–73 Australian region cyclone season was an above-average tropical cyclone season, in terms of activity. [4], The Eastern region encompasses the area east of 142.5°E and west of 160°E. In October 2020, Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) issued its tropical cyclone outlook for the 2020–21 season, and in the same month, the agency contributed towards the Southwest Pacific Tropical Cyclone Outlook, along with New Zealand's MetService, NIWA and the Fiji Meteorological Service (FMS). Tropical cyclones are non-frontal, low pressure systems that develop, within an … It began on 1 November 1998 and ended on 30 April 1999. [93], On 20 December 2020, a tropical disturbance that was being monitored by Météo-France's tropical cyclone warning centre in Réunion crossed into the Australian region from the South-West Indian Ocean basin. The 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season is the period of the year when tropical cyclones form in the Southern Indian Ocean and Pacific Oceansbetween 90°E and 160°E. [32][33] By 12:00 UTC on 10 December, the system had begun to accelerate towards the southeast, moving into an environment more favourable for intensification. [80][81] The system soon assumed a southwestward track towards the Kimberley region. The season officially began on 1 November 2020 and concluded on 30 April 2021. [8][9] The system was assigned the identifier code 01U by the BOM. [1] The Northwestern sub-region had a probability of two tropical cyclones crossing the Western Australian coast, with a significant risk of at least one of these to be a severe tropical cyclone. [51] Environmental conditions around the system were conducive for intensification, with low vertical wind shear, good upper-level outflow and sea surface temperatures near 30 °C (86 °F). It formed from the monsoon trough on 12 February in the Coral Sea. [73], As the sprawling tropical low tracked inland, flood watches and warnings were issued for large swathes of the deserts of western central Australia, incorporating parts of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and South Australia. Tropical cyclone activity in the Australian region has large variability from year to year, due to the influence of naturally occurring climate drivers, such as ENSO. This was the first Australian tropical cyclone season since 2014–15 to feature at least six severe tropical cyclones. [78] On 17 December, a low-pressure system developed within the monsoon trough, near the northern coast of the Top End, and began to move westwards. Referencing the tropical low's quickly improving structure and the presence of a weak eye feature in microwave satellite imagery, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a tropical cyclone formation alert for system at 05:30 UTC. [20], Tropical Low 01U made its closest approach to the Cocos Islands on 27–28 November, passing a little more than 500 km (310 mi) to the west. The 1988–89 Australian region cyclone season was a slightly above average tropical cyclone season. [96] These warning centres monitor all tropical cyclones that form within the Australian region, including any within the areas of responsibility of TCWC Jakarta or TCWC Port Moresby.
