This is an important thread.....please treat it as such.
Now get your self in gear and give us some stats.
I have been following every minute of Irenes formation but some folks may benefit from more information.
La Niña to return?
The latest data from Ocean Pacific weather predictors envisage La Niña conditions returning again to Australia for the second year running. The La Niña weather phenomenon (which operates in converse to the drought-associated El Niño pattern) contributed a deluge in Australia in 2010, resulting in large parts of Queensland going under water from floods or being battered by tropical cyclones.
This week, the Queensland Climate Change Centre of Excellence’s (QCCCE) published its first indicators of summer rain. QCCCE’s forecast is based on “leading indicators” of sea surface temperature conditions – an “early warning” tool for possible La Nina conditions in the summer months for Australia. The indicators are almost identical to last year at this time – 94.5% chance of normal or above normal rain (66.7% above) in the November to March period compared to 94.7% (68.4% above) last year.
This forecast by the QCCCE also echoes a forecast last week from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), which has forecasted wet weather – a result of the La Niña condition, which it believes will “come back late this year and persist during the whole of 2012”.
(12-17) 06:04 PST MANILA, Philippines (AP) --
Red Cross: Death toll in storm-triggered floods in southern Philippines rises to at least 436.
GALES with gusts to 120 kilometres per hour are currently being experienced between Point Stuart and Oenpelli. GALES may affect other areas between Cape Hotham and the mainland coast south of Goulburn Island, including inland to Jabiru, in the next few hours.
Coastal residents near the eastern Van Diemen Gulf are specifically warned of a DANGEROUS STORM TIDE this morning as the cyclone centre crosses the coast. Tides are likely to rise significantly above the normal high tide, with DAMAGING WAVES and DANGEROUS FLOODING.
Tides will be HIGHER THAN NORMAL between Cape Don and Goulburn Island today. Large waves may produce MINOR FLOODING of low-lying coastal areas.
HEAVY RAIN is expected to cause localised flooding and significant stream rises over the northern Darwin-Daly, Arnhem and northern Roper-McArthur Districts.
The Territory Controller advises residents from Cape Hotham to Goulburn Island, including Oenpelli and Jabiru, to TAKE SHELTER NOW
Ex-tropical cyclone Grant is moving towards the east and is expected to move into the Gulf of Carpentaria later today or overnight. The system is then expected to move steadily east, across the Gulf of Carpentaria and may redevelop into a tropical cyclone overnight on Thursday or on Friday.
