That's the shortest introduction into a thread I've seen, and usually I can figure out where the OP is going but I can't this time. Are you saying there is a typhoon watch in the Southern Hemisphere? If so what exact location within that hemisphere?
reply to post by bellagirl
bella, it more likely because I don't start a lot of threads.
remember the Quake Watch 2013 fiasco? LOL
3 years is not a long time? seems like forever to me.
I gave you another star, for explaining yourself.
I took it the other way, that having been on ATS for 3 years he knew what he was doing, which I didn't.edit on 01000000171714 by muzzy because: (no reason given)
Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Queensland Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre
TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST
TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 16
Issued at 4:57 pm EST on Thursday 30 January 2014
A Cyclone WARNING remains current for coastal and island communities from
Cardwell to St Lawrence extending to adjacent inland areas, including
At 4:00 pm EST Tropical Cyclone Dylan, Category 1 was estimated to be 205
kilometres northeast of Townsville and 260 kilometres north of Proserpine and
moving southwest at 12 kilometres per hour towards the coast.
Tropical Cyclone Dylan is expected to continue moving in a general
southwesterly direction and further intensify before crossing the Queensland
coast between Townsville and Bowen in the early hours of Friday morning.
The cyclone and a strong ridge of high pressure further south are combining to
generate GALES at times along much of the east coast between Cardwell and St
Lawrence. Winds are expected to increase further between Lucinda and St
Lawrence during the remainder of today and extending to adjacent inland areas
on Friday morning with DESTRUCTIVE WIND GUSTS to 150 kilometres per hour
Heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop about
coastal and adjacent inland areas of the Herbert and Lower Burdekin and the
Central Coast and Whitsundays districts during today.
Coastal residents between Lucinda and St Lawrence, including Townsville are
specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide, particularly on the high tide
today and on Friday. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well
above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas
close to the shoreline. People living in areas likely to be affected by this
flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and
be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised
to do so by the authorities.
A storm tide is expected between Cardwell and Lucinda, particularly on the high
tide on Thursday and Friday. Large waves may produce minor flooding along the
foreshore. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should
take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to
help their neighbours.
A separate Severe Weather Warning is current for remaining coastal and island
communities from Cooktown to Cardwell and from St Lawrence to Gladstone,
extending inland to the northern Central Highlands and eastern parts of the
Central West districts on Friday.
People between Cardwell and Mackay should take precautions and listen to the
next advice at 8pm.

TROPICAL CYCLONE INFORMATION BULLETIN
For 11:42 am EST on Saturday 1 February 2014
At 10 am EST Saturday, Tropical Cyclone Edna (Category 1) with central pressure
995 hPa was located
over the central Coral Sea near latitude 20.2 south longitude 152.9 east, which
is about 400 km east northeast of Mackay.
TROPICAL CYCLONE EDNA, CATEGORY 1, is expected to continue moving in a
southeast direction today and remain offshore of the Queensland coast. Tropical
Cyclone Edna should become slow moving tonight before weakening on Sunday
The next Information Bulletin will be issued by 5 pm EST today.

Tropical Cyclone (tc) 16p (Kofi), located approximately 517 nm
southeast of Suva, Fiji, has tracked southeastward at 06
knots over the past six hours. Animated multispectral satellite
imagery depicts weakening deep convection, however convective
banding is still wrapping into the low-level circulation center
(llcc). A 020210z noaa-19 microwave image also reveals a partially-
exposed llcc on the northwest edge of the deep convective banding.
the current intensity remains assessed at 45 knots based on dvorak
estimates of 45 knots from pgtw and knes. The current position is
based on the aforementioned microwave image with fair confidence. TC
16p is tracking along the western periphery of the subtropical ridge
located to the east. By tau 24, tc 16p should begin extra-tropical
transition (ett) as it interacts with the trough and baroclinic
zone. After tau 36, the system will encounter increasing vertical
wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures, which will serve to
weaken the system rapidly.
Maximum significant wave height at 020600z is 18 feet.
next warnings at 022100z and 030900z.
