TROPICAL LOW TO FORM IN CORAL SEA AND BEGIN MOVING TOWARDS QUEENSLAND

TROPICAL LOW TO FORM IN CORAL SEA AND BEGIN MOVING TOWARDS QUEENSLAND
​Computer models indicate a Tropical LOW will begin forming in the far North-Eastern Coral Sea over the next 24-48 hours and adopt a westerly track towards Queensland over the next week. About 30% of modelling indicates that this system will deepen sufficiently to become a Tropical Cyclone, while approximately 70% of computer models continue to indicate that this system will likely remain a LOW pressure system as it hits the Queensland coast next week. Once guidance begins to solidify ...

MONSOON TROUGH TO REDEVELOP TOMORROW

MONSOON TROUGH TO REDEVELOP TOMORROW
The monsoon trough is likely to reform over the Arafura Sea tomorrow. It is still unclear about whether or not this trough will stick around for very long or more importantly whether it will drift south to affect Queensland, WA and NT tropical areas in the medium to long term. Computer models indicate weak LOWS are likely to form along the monsoon trough in the Indian Ocean and the Arafura/Timor Seas over the coming week. An unrelated trough and LOW in the Coral Sea will bring hea...

DARWIN TC IMPACT LIKELY THIS WEEKEND

Darwin get set for a wild weekend of squally storms and possible gales. A Tropical low has been developing over the last few days in the Arafura Sea and will drift SW to be near Darwin on Sunday. When the low develops into a TC it will be named TC BLANCHE.Images below show the likely position of the system on Sunday, as you can see gales will likely begin to affect the Darwin area later this weekend into early Monday morning. Often with this type of scenario it's not uncommon to see waterspouts ...

DARWIN TO FACE HIGHEST TC RISK OF THE SEASON

Well folks, our subscribers have known about this developing system for over a week and given models have continued to firm, we can confidently say the NT North and NW Coasts are facing their highest TC risk all season. In fact, we have to look back to TC Lam in 2015 for the last time we had a reasonable threat to the NT Coast. At this stage a low has developed approximately 450kms North of Nhulunbuy and is expected to develop slightly as it takes a SW track. Most modelling has been in agre...

GULF LOW TO FORM LATE THIS WEEK - NO THREAT TO NORTH QUEENSLAND COAST

Hot on the heels of the Western Australian LOW, another LOW is likely to form in the Gulf Of Carpentaria in a couple of days. Contrary to what some media outlets and social media pages might have you believe there is no threat of this system becoming a tropical cyclone off the Far Northern Queensland coast , we've even heard of some ridiculous predictions of a cyclone or LOW hitting our lovely home - Townsville - by Saturday. This is utter garbage. The system is likely to for...

CYCLONE OR NOT IT DOESN'T MATTER - PILBARA COAST LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE LOW END CYCLONIC CONDITIONS

A Tropical LOW is developing near the Kimberley coastline. The LOW will move offshore tomorrow and develop further. On Wednesday the LOW will move south and lie near or on the Pilbara coast. Gales with damaging wind gusts will develop along the Pilbara coast and widespread rain will also accompany these strong winds. Let's take a look at what computer models have to say. The Euro model has a borderline Category One system making landfall on Wednesday evening near Roebourne with winds g...

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM

Very active monsoonal conditions are expected in the Top End from today with the NW Coast including Darwin expecting squally conditions by Sunday night. Interestingly, a very small surface eddy formed just to the east of Darwin this morning which could locally enhance rainfall in the region. These types of features are very common in Monsoon Troughs and are not easy to forecast. As the trough slowly migrates southwards to near the base of the Top End this week, squally NW winds wi...

MONSOON TO FIRE UP WITH MULTIPLE LOWS POSSIBLE

Well by now we should all know that the monsoon is firing up and will create a LOW for Western Australia, but did you know latest computer model outputs from multiple weather models show the Gulf Of Carpentaria joining in on the action with a LOW/cyclone of their own? A couple of models even show a LOW in the Coral Sea off Queensland's North-East coast. The primary action of course is already showing signs of forming soon near Timor. That first LOW will remain weak and w...
