Gday all,

Just came across this on the news and thought it was worth mentioning. I live in Perth and cant remember a Cyclone ever crossing the coast here. Tropical Cyclone Bianca was formed off the pilbara coast and made landfall recently.

Since then it has gone back out to sea but is tracking down the Western Australian coast and is expected to make landfall between Jurien Bay and Albany on Sunday January 30th.

On the W.A. Bureau of Meteorology website it gives a detailed history of Perth and Cyclones although my memory defeats me when trying to recall any such event. Apparently Perth averages a Cyclone once every 7-10 years but no such event has occured since the early nineties!!

Ive posted sources and a Cyclone path prediction for further reading!
Hopefully I get this right as this is my first attempt at adding links!

Hope it doesn't hit Perth - especially after the WA bushfires and eastern state floods! It's unlikely it will hit and will spin off to the ocean. Good luck (not that you will need it).

Nice find. Like I stated in a previous post about the volcano in Japan. Mother Earth is not happy with us and She is letting us know it....
The last thing Australia needs now is more water. I wish all my brothers and sisters down-under safety and blessings throughout this impending storm.

Not likely to head out to sea.

Not likely to be a cyclone when it hits land either, there's no high pressure system nearby to fuel it.

Yeah me too. Fingers crossed you're right on this one, us Aussies have copped alot of bad weather as of late. Just to add that this weather system is likely to bring more rain to the Gascoyne region which has already experienced flooding earlier this year, although was overshadowed by the Queensland flooding for obvious reasons.

You're right about that! Not a day goes by where something doesn't happen that affects humanity in some way. Mother nature has been relentless as of late.

Thanks for the well wishes and Im sure we all Down Under will battle through it and eventually come out on top.

According to the predicted path image, landfall is almost certain. I'm not too educated on weather systems so you've taught me something as far as cyclones needing high pressure sytems to feed them. I hope you're right on that one cause the map says otherwise. Time will tell and thanks for the info.

Look i'll admit I'm not 100% on what feeds them, the high pressure is what an old fisho I know said about it.

But I've also just read that it needs to interact with a cold front as well, which is a low pressure system.

Fortunately for us there isn't much besides the cyclone itself.

One thing I do know is if the barometer pressure drops down to the 900's as it approaches, it means the severity increases.

Can anyone tell me how I would go about posting the image of predicted path to this thread? My attempt ended up with the link to external image.
Any help would be muchly appreciated.

It sounded good to me though and I'd probably take "an old fishos" word for it too

Lets hope the barometer stays nice and lofty then.

Gold star for you mate! Cheers for the tip and I assume its the same for vids too?

Oh and I will definately be keeping an eye on BOM for the next couple of days!!

The weather is going crazy.Perth is very odd for a cyclone to hit.We went through Ilui last year.ALL my thoughts are with the people of Perth.

Ive never heard or remember seeing a Cyclone head so far south and hitting Perth before...this was be terrible. Perth is pretty much on the same Latitude as Sydney and I dont remember Sydney ever experiencing a Cyclone....

Thanks again Chadwickus! You the first fellow Sandgroper I've spoke to on here... Nice to meet you. Atleast now I wont embarass myself like some others do and mess up any future threads!

I vaguely remember Perth copping the "tail" of a cyclone a few years back which was pretty intense! I think it made landfall in Geraldton which is still more than 400 clicks north of Perth. As for any other instances I'm clueless.

There's been a few over the years (centuries).

Alby was a big one that hit in 78:

There is a few of us on here actually, I was surprised at how many there were initially too!

I orginally asked this over in the Hurricane/Cyclone/Typhoon Watch 2011 thread, so maybe you all might know if the Herald Sun is reputable, but they are saying that two storms are likely to hit over a period of a few days. Thanks for the help in advance,

"QUEENSLAND Premier Anna Bligh has reactivated the state disaster management group as two possible cyclones threaten to hit within days of each other.
Cyclone Anthony could intensify from a category one to a category three storm and hit the Burdekin Coast, between Cardwell and Bowen, on Monday, the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says.

Meanwhile, it's feared a tropical low about 1500km northeast of Vanuatu could build into a category four cyclone and hit north of Gladstone on Thursday.

"In a worst-case scenario, Queensland could see two tropical cyclones cross the coast in a matter of three or four days," Ms Bligh told reporters in Brisbane."
