[51] Post analysis determined that the system briefly reached tropical cyclone intensity just before making landfall. In the average cyclone season, 10 tropical cyclones develop over Australian waters, of which six cross the coast, mostly over northeast Queensland (between about Mossman and Maryborough) and northwestern Australia (between Exmouth and Broome). [73] TCWC Perth also stated that it had a chance of becoming a tropical cyclone. The season only had 2 storms that did not make it to cyclone status, a record low number in the Australian basin. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but were still related to that storm. During that day, the system turned westwards and weakened below tropical cyclone intensity into a remnant low during 1 May. Stan reached category 2 tropical cyclone strength at 8:00 pm AWST time, when it was located 280 km north of Port Hedland. Over the next few days, the system remained over water and dissipated during 15 February after it had produced some powerful, long period swells along Queensland beaches. [62] On the morning of 6 April local time, sustained gales developed on the western side of the system, however it was still classified as a tropical low as the winds did not extend more than halfway around the storm. It generated winds of up to 330kph at its strongest. This increased cyclone activity prediction is largely due to continued forecast changes in weather patterns along with the significant … Cyclone Trevor made landfall as … Tropical Low 06U was first noted during 18 December while it was located in the Arafura Sea, about 260 km (160 mi) to the northwest of Darwin in the Northern Territory.

As the 2015-16 tropical cyclone year opened on 1 July 2015, the newly named Tropical Cyclone Raquel moved south-westward into the Australian region. [4] The outlook took into account the strong El Niño conditions that had been observed across the Pacific and analogue seasons that had ENSO neutral and weak El Niño conditions occurring during the season. [2] The BoM issued a seasonal forecast for both the Western and Eastern South Pacific. These reports have mainly been compiled using original material produced soon after the cyclone occurred.

Tropical Low 09U developed over the Indian Ocean to the northwest of the, On 1 March, BoM started monitoring a weak tropical low to the south of. Although expected to steer clear of the Coral Sea, some experts hoped that widespread cloudiness from the developing system would result in cooler ocean temperatures across the region, negating an ongoing coral bleaching event in the Great Barrier Reef. [17], On 7 January, a weak tropical low had developed within a monsoonal trough of low pressure over the Cape York Peninsula, before moving into the Gulf of Carpentaria.

The precursor tropical low to Tropical Cyclone Uriah developed over the Indian Ocean, within a monsoon trough of low pressure during 9 February. [14] The tropical low meandered southwards as it was over in favourable conditions. Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie caused widespread damage, especially due to extremely high rainfall totals, as it tracked down the Queensland coast. It generated winds of up to 330kph at its strongest. [8] By 21 December, it had strengthened into a Category 1 tropical cyclone on the Australian tropical cyclone intensity scale as persistent deep convection developed, and the BoM named it Yvette. The basin subsequently remained quiet with only several weak tropical lows developing, before the first named tropical cyclone of the season was named Stan during 29 January 2016. [45] The city recorded substantial rainfall of 145 mm (5.71 in) within a 24-hour period. [69] However, during the next day, the chances of the system developing into a tropical cyclone weakened, as a moderate to high amount of vertical wind shear impacted the low. [citation needed], Tropical Low 14U developed within a monsoon trough near Vanderlin Island, in the southern Gulf of Carpentaria, on 14 March. [62][63] Ernie continued to intensify gradually during this time, peaking with 10-minute sustained winds of 220 km/h (140 mph), gusts to 315 km/h (195 mph) and a central barometric pressure of 922 hPa (27.23 inHg).[62]. On 22 March, a weak but well-defined area of low pressure developed over the Coral Sea, near the Louisiade Archipelago of Papua New Guinea. [36], With increasing deep convection and a more consolidated centre of circulation, the JTWC issued a tropical cyclone formation alert at 02:00 UTC on 5 March,[37] and designated the system as Tropical Cyclone 10S shortly thereafter at 15:00 UTC. South Australia For the Western region between 90°E and 125°E, the BoM forecast that the area would also see activity near its average of 7, with a 59% chance of an above average number of tropical cyclones occurring. [5] This system subsequently consolidated in the Great Australian Bight and moved south-eastwards, where it passed to the west of Tasmania before it moved into the Tasman Sea during 31 December. [53] The system drew nearer to the coast during the morning of 28 March, and during this time a wind gust of 263 km/h (163 mph) was recorded on Hamilton Island. The low intensified into a Category 1 tropical cyclone on the Australian cyclone intensity scale on the morning of 20 February, and was named Alfred. Australia's Bureau of Meteorology hasn't named this system in the Indian Ocean (referring to it simply as Tropical Low 02U), but the US military's Joint Typhoon Warning Center is calling it Tropical Cyclone 03.

[4], In addition to contributing towards the Island Climate Update outlook, the BoM issued seven seasonal forecasts during October 2015, for the Australian region and the Southern Pacific with each forecast covering the whole tropical cyclone year. [3] For the North-Western sub-region between 105°E and 130°E, it was predicted that activity would be above average, with a 63% chance of above-average tropical cyclone activity. [19], Tropical Low 09U developed over the Indian Ocean to the northwest of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, within a monsoon trough of low pressure during 9 February. Western Australians urged to prepare for cyclones . [14][15] Over the next couple of days, the system gradually deepened further as it moved west-northwest inland and passed near Daly Waters and Katherine. On 9 December, a tropical low developed within the monsoon trough and moved slowly westwards. As the 2015–16 tropical cyclone year opened on 1 July 2015, the newly named Tropical Cyclone Raquel moved south-westward into the Australian region.

[4] The system subsequently made landfall on the Kimberley and degenerated into a deep monsoonal low, remaining slow-moving over north-western Australia for several days. [3] They also noted that the number of significant cyclones and flood impacts had been well below average over the last five seasons. This was done when the system in question was judged to have 10-minute sustained wind speeds of 65 km/h (40 mph) that extended at least halfway around the system. World News | Reuters | Monday February 29, 2016 . Tropical cyclones and subtropical cyclones are named by various warning centers to provide ease of communication between forecasters and the general public regarding forecasts, watches, and warnings. [14] The system was given a "moderate" chance of strengthening into a tropical cyclone during the next day,[81] however the system remained over land while moving southwest and did not develop further. Tropical Low 27U originated as a slow-moving area of low pressure in an active monsoon trough in the eastern Arafura Sea off the west coast of New Guinea on 6 April. [53] The system intensified to a Category 1 tropical cyclone on the Australian tropical cyclone intensity scale at 00:00 UTC on 25 March, and was subsequently named Debbie. [2] The Eastern region between 142.5°E and 160°E was predicted to have a near normal tropical cyclone season, though it was noted that there was a possibility of a delayed start to the season. Read the detailed post cyclone reports for Australian cyclones dating back to 1970. [27] Widespread flooding resulted in access to towns such as Wagin and Gnowangerup being cut off while the South Coast Highway crossing the Phillips River was washed away, resulting in no access between Jerramungup and Ravensthorpe. [53] The system weakened steadily as it moved inland, falling to Category 3 by 06:00 UTC while located near Proserpine, Category 2 while near Collinsville a few hours afterwards, and Category 1 by 16:00 UTC. The first noted as it developed within a monsoon trough to the northwest of Christmas Island during 23 September, but was not expected to develop any further as it moved southwards towards the Australian territory. [65] Despite the forecast intensification of Tropical Low 27U, a combination of factors such as land interaction with the northwest Top End and the displacement of the lower-level and upper-level circulation centres of the system due to high vertical wind shear significantly limited development, and ultimately began to degrade the system. The system subsequently approached Darwin during 24 December, where it was causing near gale-force winds offshore. [16] A couple of days later, 05U drifted southeastwards towards land and failed to reach tropical cyclone intensity. [1][25] The system was subsequently last noted by the BoM to the southwest of Guadalcanal, on 5 July, as it rapidly lost its tropical characteristics. [28] On 28 December, as the low slowly moved south, unfavorable environments hinder the chance of being a cyclone. Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Western Australia. Cyclones named by TCWC Jakarta and Port Moresby are rare, with the last named cyclones occurring during 2014 and 2007, respectively. This season was also the second-costliest tropical cyclone season on record in the Australian region basin, behind only the 2010–11 season, with a total of AUD$3.7 billion (US$2.82 billion) in damages incurred by the various storms, mostly from Cyclone Debbie.[1]. [11] Later the same day, both the JTWC and the BoM issued their final bulletin on Yvette.

[2] It was also noted that the first tropical cyclone landfall might be later than usual, with the average first landfall taking place in January during El Niño conditions. Tropical cyclones named by the TCWC Jakarta and Port Moresby are rare, with the last named cyclones occurring during 2014 and 2007, respectively. [citation needed] The system was last noted on 17 December. It was the period of the year when most tropical cyclones form in the Southern Indian Ocean and Pacific Oceans between 90°E and 160°E. [76] By the next day, it had moved north into TCWC Jakarta's area of responsibility. A tropical low off Western Australia's north-west coast intensifies into a tropical cyclone, amid warnings it is likely to be upgraded to a category three before it makes landfall near Port Hedland. [2] It was forecast that the region would less active than during previous years, with a 91% chance of a below average amount of tropical cyclones, because of the strong El Niño episode that had developed over the Pacific Ocean. [62] The system tracked south-westwards throughout the day, before adopting a course to the south-southwest during the night. [62] Ex-Tropical Cyclone Ernie continued to track to the west-southwest until the remnants of the system dissipated three days later. [10] TCWC Perth forecast the low would intensify to a tropical cyclone and move into the Western Region by 24 hours on 21 December. The season was the first to have a severe tropical cyclone since the 2014–15 season. By early 27 March, Caleb had weakened below cyclone strength due to a combination of dry air and cooler sea surface temperatures. [88] The system had moved in a westerly direction until it was last noted on 22 February.[89]. [4] Over the next couple of days, the system moved south-westwards and gradually developed further as it moved into the Timor Sea, where it reached its peak intensity with 10-minute sustained winds of 55 km/h (35 mph) and a minimum pressure of 995 hPa (29.38 inHg). The 2016-17 Australian region cyclone season was a slightly above average season that lasted from October 2016 to May 2017. It was also predicted that the first tropical cyclone landfall on Australia would take place during December 2016. Frances maintained Category 3 strength until the morning of 29 April, where it rapidly weakened due to increasingly unfavorable atmospheric conditions, becoming a tropical low on the morning of 30 April. 2 cyclones in total for Northern region with 1 possibly severe. Stan subsequently made landfall on Western Australia and impacted various commodities including oil, natural gas, and iron ore. [3] The Western region between 142.5°E and 165°E was predicted to have a 15% chance of having an above average number of tropical cyclones, while the Eastern region between 165°E and 120°W was predicted to have a 48% chance of having an above average number of tropical cyclones.[3]. Despite the tropical origins of the system, the thick cloud cover over the area also resulted in records for the coldest February maximum temperatures being broken. Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie in 2017 was the strongest tropical cyclone to strike Queensland since Marcia in 2015, and was the costliest tropical cyclone in Australia since Yasi in 2011.Forming as a tropical low on 23 March, the low gradually intensified to a named tropical cyclone on 26 March. Several thousand square miles of forest was wiped out, but no injuries were reported.Most recent cyclone: Tropical Cyclone Stan in 2016 had winds of 80 mph just before landfall. [59] This figure surpassed the initial prediction of A$2 billion (US$1.55 billion), which incorporated an estimated $1.5 billion loss in coal exports, $270 million in damage to crops such as sugar cane, a $120–280 million impact on tourism in the Whitsunday region, and physical damage to both public and private property. [5] For the North-Western subregion between 105°E and 130°E, it was predicted that activity would be below average, with a 15% chance of above average tropical cyclone activity. The system subsequently developed further and was named Uriah during 13 February, before it moved out of the region during the following day. After the least active season on record had occurred during the previous season, the BoM issued five tropical cyclone outlooks for the Australian region during October 2016. [9] On 20 December, TCWC Jakarta issued an advisory as the low was inside their area of responsibility, as it was located about 567 km (352 mi) south-southwest of Tanjung Karang. [21] During the next day, the JTWC began issuing advisories, classifying it as 03S as it moved over water. However, impacts were limited due to the low population of the region. Alfred remained a Category 1 tropical cyclone for almost 24 hours before weakening below cyclone strength, just before crossing the coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria, in the early afternoon of 21 February. [5], A tropical low developed during 19 December within a monsoon trough of low pressure, about 660 km (410 mi) to the north-northwest of Karratha in Western Australia and was designated as 07U. [59] The majority of these fatalities resulted from the remnant low pressure system rather than the cyclone itself. Over the next few days, the system moved slowly in an area of weak steering flow as it struggled to develop further before it started moving turned to the southwest during 12 February. [14], On 1 July, as the 2015–16 tropical cyclone year opened, the newly named Tropical Cyclone Raquel moved southwestward into the Australian region. This renewed strengthening was brief, however, as Ernie began weakening again in the afternoon of the same day. [27] TCWC Perth later classified it as a weak tropical low with the identifier of 06U. Tropical Cyclone Seasonal Outlook for Northwest Australia. There has only been one list that the Bureau of Meteorology have assigned names to tropical cyclones since the 2008–09 season. The Perth metro station received 114.4 mm (4.50 in) in the 24 hours leading up to 9:00 a.m. AWST (01:00 UTC) on 10 February, the second highest 24-hour total on record for the city and over ten times its monthly average of 8.8 mm (0.35 in). [50] At the same time, the tropical low's maximum 10-minute sustained winds were estimated at approximately 30 km/h (15 mph), gusting to 85 km/h (50 mph). [2] TCWC Perth also noted that there was a likelihood of two tropical cyclones and a significant likelihood of at least one severe tropical cyclone impacting Western Australia. The system moved out of the region and into the South West Indian Ocean basin during 14 February, where it became an intense tropical cyclone before degenerating into a remnant low during 19 February. During 24 March, gales had developed around the system, and it was classified as a Category 1 tropical cyclone on the Australian cyclone intensity scale at 06:00 UTC on the same day. Three of the five centres were operated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) in Perth, Darwin, and Brisbane, while the other two were operated by the National Weather Service of Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby and the Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics in Jakarta, Indonesia.
