Grain Central, November 1, 2016

Australia’s 2016/17 Tropical Cyclone season officially begins┬átoday.

This year is anticipated to be more eventful than last year, which was the quietest on record for the Australian region.

Warmer sea surface temperatures to the north and east of Australia are expected to help boost cyclone numbers.

The outlook is for a near-to-above average number of cyclones in Australian waters, the average being 11 in our area of responsibility.

The next 11 tropical cyclones to be named within the Australian region will be given the following names, in order:
– Yvette
– Alfred
– Blanche
– Caleb
– Debbie
– Ernie
– Frances
– Greg
– Hilda
– Irving
– Joyce
