2020 cyclone season

Due to the wind shear, it weakened to a cyclonic storm, shortly before making landfall between Karaikal and Mamallapuram around Puducherry, Wednesday evening. This is because when systems move between basins, it creates a discrepancy in the actual number of systems and fatalities. [56] At 15:00 UTC on December 2, Burevi reached its peak intensity with 1-minute sustained winds of around 85 km/h (50 mph) and a barometric pressure of 996 mbar (29.41 inHg). The Telengana PM estimated damage costs to be ₹1,305 crore (US$682 million). An average Pacific typhoon season features 26 tropical storms, 16 typhoons, and 9 super typhoons (unofficial category). Another one of them has been moving in and out of the Australian region. Later in the month, activity increased in the South Pacific with Vicky and Wasi forming, bringing heavy rain to the Samoan Islands. Image: The area of cloud inside the green circle has the potential to become Australia's frist tropical cyclone of the 2020/21 season. On November 22, an area of low pressure was formed in the Bay of Bengal, off the coast of Tamil Nadu. After that, on December 6 another low formed off the coast of Java, which also intensified into a tropical storm status according to JTWC. The official Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre in the basin is the India Meteorological Department (IMD), while the United States's Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) releases unofficial advisories. In the North Indian Ocean, Nisarga formed near southwest India and historically affected the cities of Alibag and Mumbai. [45] The low-level circulation became completely exposed early on 23 November as it traversed northeastern Somalia; the system's upper-level circulation and associated convection detached and accelerated west ahead of the surface low. The official start to the 2020 Cyclone Season is November 1 st – and going on recent model runs there’s already a small tropical depression forecast to form over Southwest Pacific. The average typhoon season lasts year-round, with the majority of the storms forming between May and October. Uesi also impacted the east coast of Australia and New Caledonia, killing one person. 07F & 08F dissipated before becoming tropical depressions but the other 2 strengthened into tropical cyclones Vicky and Wasi. Alicia strengthened into a tropical cyclone on November 15, rapidly weakened due to the vertical wind shear and cool waters, and dissipated on 17th. Delta and Zeta impacted the Yucátan Peninsula before making landfall in Louisiana. Let’s hope that’s a sign of things to come. Another low named 03U formed and quickly dissipated after making landfall in Northern Territory, Australia. In the Western Pacific, Etau and Vamco developed, Vamco later becoming a Category 4 typhoon and both further contributing to the devastating flooding in Vietnam and in the Philippines. The season began on May 16 with the designation of Depression BOB 01 in the Bay of Bengal, which later became Cyclone Amphan, the strongest storm in the Bay of Bengal recorded since the 1999 Odisha cyclone and breaking the record of Cyclone Nargis of 2008 as the costliest storm ever recorded in the basin. Better Than Northerlies – Cyclone Season Arrives At Noosa & Kirra Two of the east coast’s best waves have been producing the goods the last 48hrs with the boiling pot and Kirra dishing out pits for the likes of Nick Vasicek, Chris Zaffis, Brent Dorrington, Dextar Muskins, Dion Atkinson, Kai Hing, Harrison Roach and more. It hampered the system intensification due to a brief interaction with Tropical Depression 01F. Then, on October 11, after the inactivity gap came to a close, Deep Depression BOB 02 formed. [50] The JTWC then issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system, that same day. During October, eighteen tropical cyclones formed and the month became tied for the second-most active month of the year, with thirteen of the cyclones being named. It mentions all of the season's storms and their names, duration, peak intensities (according to the IMD storm scale), damage, and death totals. The season began on May 16 with the designation of Depression BOB 01 in the Bay of Bengal, w… June was slightly inactive with just six tropical cyclones forming and five of them being named.

Steered west by a subtropical ridge to the north, little intensification was expected before the cyclone's forecast landfall in Somalia. At the beginning of the month, the active Tropical Low 01U later became Severe Tropical Storm Bongoyo although the precursor of the storm formed in November and is thus is counted as part of that month. Tropical cyclones are primarily monitored by a group of ten warning centres, which have been designated as a Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) or a Tropical Cyclone Warning Center (TCWC) by the World Meteorological Organization. The last depression dissipated in early December. On January 24, a depression formed and dissipated the next day without been named. This was mainly due to the developing La Niña. In 2020 in the North Atlantic basin, all of the statistics fell well above listed, featuring a record-breaking 30 tropical storms, 13 hurricanes, and 6 major hurricanes, with an ACE total of 178. [43] This made Gati the first hurricane-force cyclone to strike the country since reliable records began and by default the nation's strongest. The month of February was fairly active, seeing thirteen tropical cyclones develop, with eight being named. However, any storms that form between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021, will count towards the season total. On average, there are 9 to 11 tropical cyclones each season in the Australian region, four of which typically cross the coast. If the low does reach tropical cyclone strength inside our region, it will become the first tropical cyclone of our 2020/21 season and be named Imogen. Yasa is currently intensifying and is now a Category 5 according to Australian scale. Gati formed on November 21, causing one of the longest naming gaps in history. The system's small size enabled it to take advantage of low wind shear and high sea surface temperatures. In 2020 in the North Atlantic basin, all of the statistics fell well above listed, featuring a record-breaking 30 tropical storms, 13 hurricanes, and 6 major hurricanes, with an ACE total of 178. Each individual storm generated very low ACE counts throughout the season, ending at a total of just 73 units. The name Nivar was contributed by Iran. In the Eastern Pacific two tropical storms, Odalys and Polo, formed but intensified little. The strongest storm in the basin this year was Hurricane Marie, which reached low-end Category 4 strength on the Saffir–Simpson scale and it did not impact land. The South Pacific also so far has featured three cyclones, one of which was Cyclone Yasa which became the strongest storm of the year and the fourth strongest South Pacific tropical cyclone on record as a Category 5-equivalent cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson scale. [15], During May 31, an area of low pressure developed over the south-eastern Arabian Sea and remained as a well marked low pressure area over the same region until the evening. 57%. At least 50 people died in different parts of Telengana (of which at least 19 were in the capital city of Hyderabad), 10 in Andhra Pradesh, and 38 in Maharashtra. Hurricane Sally brought devastating impacts to parts of the Southeastern United States while Hurricane Paulette made landfall in Bermuda as a Category 1 hurricane. [57] Shortly afterwards, Burevi made landfall along the east coast of Sri Lanka according to the Sri Lanka's Department of Meteorology. [51] At 03:00 UTC on December 1, the depression was upgraded into a deep depression. Yasa caused catastrophic damge and four deaths in Fiji. It hit Christmas Island and dissipated quickly after making landfall in Pilbara Region of Western Australia. In August, Typhoon Hagupit became the second typhoon of the season, striking China. Later in the month, Mangga formed as an off-season tropical storm in the Australian region. Six hours later, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) upgraded the system to a deep depression. It was designated 06F by the Fiji Meteorological Service. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no official bounds, but cyclones tend to form between April and November, with peaks in late April to May and October to November. According to the JTWC, it explosively intensified from a Category 1-equivalent cyclone to a Category 4-equivalent cyclone in just 6 hours. The 2019–20 season was slightly above average with eight tropical cyclones and four severe tropical cyclones forming during the season. It strengthened into a moderate tropical storm, then to a severe tropical storm, naming it Bongoyo. This is a table of all storms in the 2020 North Indian Ocean cyclone season. [37] Similarly, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) initiated advisories on the system as Tropical Cyclone 03A. On November 12, Alicia formed on the extreme northeast section of the basin. 3. [29], On October 20, a low pressure formed over Central Bay of Bengal. Two more depressions formed in October, and none were named - one of only a few occurrences on record. Overall, there were 22 named storms in the basin in 2020, which was slightly below the norm of 27. 2020 Cyclone Season in the Northern Indian Ocean Cyclones tend to form between April and December, fueled by changing seasons (in the west) and the monsoon (in the east). 6The wind speeds for this tropical cyclone are based on Météo-France which uses wind gusts. BOM's forecast track map of the weather system in the Gulf of Carpentaria at 2:30pm on Friday, February 21, 2020. Along with the system another low formed off the coast of Kimberley Region. Two more cyclones formed in the Arabian Sea, ARB 01, affecting Yemen and Oman, and Cyclone Nisarga, which made landfall in Maharashtra. Gati later became a Category 3 tropical cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, and made landfall in the Arabian Peninsula. Sarai formed on December 23, lasting into the new year before finally ceasing to exist on January 2. November was moderately active with twelve tropical cyclones forming, of which eleven were named. They believed that there was a 60% chance that the environment would remain in neutral conditions related to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO); this was based on the expectation that the above normal water temperatures would return to normal. Iota eventually became the strongest storm of the month and only the second Category 5 hurricane ever recorded in the North Atlantic in November, continuing a spree of damage in Central America following Eta. It was also the fourth most intense South Pacific tropical cyclone after Winston, Zoe, Pam, while Zazu dissipated into an extratropical cyclone. It rapidly intensified into a Category 5 Severe tropical cyclone as it impacted Vanuatu.The season ended on April 10. Overall, there were 31 tropical depressions declared officially or unofficially, of which 22 became named storms; of those, there were 10 typhoons, which is the equivalent of a minimal hurricane, while 2 of the 10 typhoons intensified into super typhoons unofficially by the JTWC. The catastrophic season ended on November 18, after Hurricane Iota dissipated. The system weakened into a well marked low pressure area, 50 km north-northwest of Dhaka on the morning of October 24. [36] At 18:00 UTC, the IMD classified the system as Depression ARB 04 about 410 km (255 mi) east-southeast of Socotra. It made landfall on Sri Lanka as a weak cyclonic storm before it degenerated to an area of low pressure. A total of ten storms developed, with six of these systems were named and had gale-force winds, while two of these named storms developed hurricane-force winds and were classified as severe tropical cyclones. [4] By 09:00 UTC on May 17, Amphan had intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm. It continued to move westwards, making landfall near Saigon and further weakened into a low pressure cell while crossing the Indochina Peninsula and re-emerged in the Andaman Sea on October 9. As 2020 began, sea surface temperatures were above normal in the eastern Pacific Ocean near the equator, which had the potential to develop into El Niño conditions. There are no tropical cyclones expected in the coming week, says Tonga Met's first 5 days outlook for the season issued today [59] However, Burevi slowed down quickly as it became stuck in a col between two subtropical ridges on December 4; thus it stalled just west of Sri Lanka while it weakened back down to the equivalent of a tropical depression due to increasing vertical wind shear. The month of May was marginally active with eight tropical cyclones developing and six of those being named. [5][6] When Typhoon Vongfong struck the Philippines in May, evacuation shelters were filled to half-capacity to comply with social distancing guidelines, requiring more evacuation centers to house refugees. [49] Early on November 24, it intensified into a cyclonic storm and it was named Nivar. Near the end of the month, Gonzalo, Hanna and Isaias marked the earliest seventh, eighth, and ninth-named storms on record in the Atlantic, beating the record set by Gert, Harvey and Irene all in 2005 respectively. In the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, COVID-19, travel and social distancing restrictions associated with the pandemic were lifted for those seeking safe houses and evacuation shelters during Cyclone Harold. Adding on, Tino brought considerable damage throughout the South Pacific in the middle portion of the month, and a rare South Atlantic tropical cyclone formed, named Kurumí, becoming the first of its kind to be named in January later on in the month. The exception was the number of tropical storms, featuring 17, which was slightly above average for the basin. It gradually intensified into a Severe Cyclonic Storm, reaching its peak intensity. It made a landfall between Puducherry and Chennai close to Mahabalipuram in the midnight of November 25. Three other tropical lows formed in late January and early February. Two more storms formed in the Bay of Bengal - Nivar and Burevi, both impacting south India. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no real bounds, but cyclones usually form between April and November, with the highest amount of storms in May and October. The other half, 2020 began with the arrival of Tropical Depression 01F on November 22, near the Solomon Islands, which would later become Tropical Cyclone Rita. However, all models are largely in agreement that the overall tropical cyclone activity is expected to be below the long term average. Many records were broken throughout the season, including the extreme rate of tropical cyclone formations, the second time on record that the Greek naming system for named storms was used, and the strength of the storms which formed in the months of October and November. Hurricane Hanna and Isaias together would become the first and second hurricanes of the Atlantic hurricane season, with Isaias in particular spawning a damaging tornado outbreak in the Eastern United States. As a result, the ENSO Blog issued La Niña watch, stating a 50-55% chance of a strong La Niña. All damage totals are valued as of 2002 and in, Learn how and when to remove this template message, 2019–20 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, 2020–21 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, Regional Specialized Meteorological Center, Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi, dan Geofisika, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, a brief interaction with Tropical Depression 01F, devastating floods and mudslides in Southeast region of Brazil, Mediterranean tropical-like cyclone § 03M/"Elaina" (14–17 Dec 2020), flash flooding in Telengana and Maharashtra, 2020–21 South–West Indian Ocean cyclone season, 2020 South Atlantic tropical cyclone season, 2020 Mediterranean tropical-like cyclone season, "January 2020 ENSO update: new year, new you", "April 2020 ENSO Update: Alternative Communication", "July 2020 ENSO update: La Niña Watch! However, they began to warm up significantly that Spring, with the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico and the Main Development Region all having well above-average sea surface temperatures. The season concluded on November 19 with the dissipation of Tropical Storm Polo, which briefly existed for around 2 days prior. [55] At this time, microwave imagery showed well-defined convective banding wrapping tightly around the low-level circulation (LLCC). The first and second tropical cyclones of the season in the South Pacific formed within 24 hours of one another earlier this week; now Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasa is headed for Fiji. The risk of an interaction for New Zealand (with at least one cyclone coming within 550 km of the country) for the 2020/21 season is elevated. It strengthened into a depression over the east-central and south-east Arabian Sea in the early morning of June 1 when it was centered about 340 km south-west of Goa, 630 km south-southwest of Mumbai and 850 km south-southwest of Gujarat. Around 15:00 UTC, the system further developed into Cyclonic Storm Amphan. The names were selected by members of the ESCAP/WMO panel on Tropical Cyclones between 2000 and May 2004, before the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center in New Delhi started to assign names in September 2004. Although not directly making landfall, Hurricane Genevieve passed very close to Baja California Sur and caused minor damage. In the North Atlantic the incredibly active season continued with Theta and Iota having developed and breaking the record for the most named storms in an Atlantic hurricane season, surpassing that of 2005. It left behind a trail of catastrophic damage, and was later confirmed to be the costliest storm ever recorded in the basin. In addition, no storms formed in the Central Pacific ocean this year - the first such occurrence since 2017. It have become extratropical on November 20. Another storm designated as Tropical Storm 03M (unofficially named Elaina by an independent organization) formed near Cyprus, bringing heavy rain to Lebanon, Syria, and Israel, before making landfall in Lebanon. After 2 days, BOB 03 formed, impacting and affecting West Bengal, Bangladesh and the Northeast India. In the West Pacific, the third tropical depression of the formed on July 11 and at the end of the month featured Typhoon Hagupit, the second typhoon of the season, and Tropical Storm Sinlaku. These are the United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) and Central Pacific Hurricane Center, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Météo-France (MFR), Indonesia's Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi, dan Geofisika, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), Papua New Guinea's National Weather Service, the Fiji Meteorological Service (FMS) as well as New Zealand's MetService. In the Australian region, two tropical lows formed in and both impacted the Pilbara Region of Western Australia, one reaching near Category 1 tropical cyclone strength according to Australian scale. At 00:00 UTC on May 16, a depression formed in the southeast Bay of Bengal and was identified as BOB 01. We know that cyclones can develop at any time throughout the tropical cyclone season, which runs from November to April," he said. The 2020 Atlantic #hurricane season has now produced 178 ACE (Accumulated Cyclone Energy). [32] Convective activity was enhanced by the Madden–Julian oscillation while sea surface temperatures of 29 to 30 °C (84 to 86 °F) and low wind shear favored additional development. Afterwards, a record-breaking ten storms developed in the month of September. [22] The system weakened into a well-marked low pressure area in south-central Maharashtra on the evening of October 14. 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season. The 2020 North Indian Ocean cyclone season is an ongoing event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. This marked the third season in a row with a pre-season tropical cyclone. On May 20, at approximately 17:30 IST, the cyclone made landfall near Bakkhali, West Bengal after weakening subsequently. This is NOT what is will be. On June 2, around noon, the prevailing deep depression intensified into a cyclonic storm thereby receiving the name Nisarga. It became the least active season since the 2016–17 season with only three systems intensified further into severe tropical cyclones, and three systems made landfall within the region at tropical cyclone intensity. [30][31], On 17 November 2020, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) noted the potential for tropical cyclogenesis over the central Arabian Sea in association with an area convection near the Maldives. Kurumí caused devastating floods and mudslides in Southeast region of Brazil, while Mani caused heavy rainfall in the Santa Catarina state. The 2019–20 season was slightly above average, with eight tropical depressions, seven tropical storms, and three intense tropical cyclones in 2020. [11] Residents in central Salalah experienced disruptions to power and water services. The South Pacific tropical cyclone season officially began on Nov. 1, 2020 and will run through April 30, 2021. The system then became more well-marked on October 21 over West Central Bay of Bengal. It intensified into a well-marked low pressure area and then into a depression over the Bay of Bengal on October 10. Amphan simultaneously dissipated. The 2020 North Indian Ocean cyclone season is an ongoing event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. It went on to strengthen into a super cyclonic storm, being designated Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan, and make landfall in India three days later, becoming the costliest storm ever recorded in the basin. This was the fastest intensification during such a short period ever observed in the North Indian Ocean basin. The season as a whole, however, was below average. The North Atlantic mainly contributed to most development in the month and continued its record breaking season with the development of Hurricanes Nana, Paulette, Sally, and Teddy, and (Sub)Tropical Storms Omar, Rene, Vicky, Wilfred, Alpha, and Beta. The deadliest storm of the year was Eta which caused 211 fatalities and another 120 to be missing in Central America and the U.S, while the costliest storm of the year was Laura, with a damage cost around $16.1 billion in the Greater Antilles, The Bahamas, and the Gulf Coast of the United States. In July, almost no storms formed, marking the quietest July in over 130 years. The season was slightly above average, with nine tropical cyclones, five cyclonic storms, four severe cyclonic storms, three very severe cyclonic storms, and one super cyclonic storm. The strongest storm of the year so far was Yasa, peaking with a pressure of 899 hPa (26.55 inHg) and with 10-minute sustained winds of 250 km/h (155 mph). Meanwhile, in the Atlantic, sea surface temperatures were near normal in the early parts of the year. In the Australian region, one low formed which started the 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season which crossed the South-West Indian Ocean basin and intensified into a cyclone which was later named Bongoyo. Throughout 2020, 137 tropical cyclones have formed in bodies of water known as tropical cyclone basins. TROPICAL CYCLONE POTENTIAL BULLETIN ISSUED BY METEOROLOGICAL SERVICE OF NEW ZEALAND AT 2240 UTC 15-Dec-2020 CURRENT STATUS OF CYCLONE ACTIVITY Tropical Cyclone YASA (category 5) was located near 14.7S 173.5E, As the season was reaching January, it already has seen four tropical cyclones throughout the second half of 2019. Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers. Damien became the first and strongest storm of the month, impacting the Pilbara Region of Western Australia as a Category 2 tropical cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson scale. [3] In September, NOAA confirmed that the environment shifted to a La Niña pattern, based on lower than normal water temperatures in the eastern Pacific Ocean near the equator. There is no retirement of tropical cyclone names in this basin as the list of names is only scheduled to be used once before a new list of names is drawn up. Yasa became the most powerful tropical cyclone of 2020 beating Goni with a minimum barometric pressure of 899 mb (26.55 inHg) and maximum wind speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Shortly after Gati, Nivar formed off the coast of Tamil Nadu and also began to quickly intensifiy to a Category 1 equivalent tropical cyclone before striking Karaikal. The Eastern Pacific was very quiet, only featuring Norbert while the Western Pacific was active featuring numerous tropical systems which also led to severe floods in Vietnam, including Saudel, Molave, and Goni. Furthermore, Bertha formed in the Atlantic and marked the first time since 2016 that two pre-season storms have formed in the Atlantic, as well as the first time since 2012 that two tropical depressions or storms formed in the month of May. It dissipated shortly afterwards. The following morning around 10:30 UTC, the IMD upgraded Amphan to a super cyclonic storm with 3-minute sustained winds of 240 km/h (150 mph) and a minimum pressure of 920 hPa (27.46 inHg). In 2020 in the Eastern and Central Pacific basins, most of the statistics fell below the above list. Rita would then peak as a Category 3 on the Australian scale. [33][34] By 18 November, a weak low-level circulation developed about 1,185 km (735 mi) east-southeast of Socotra. [27], On October 17, the remnants of Deep Depression BOB 02 intensified into a depression in the East Central Arabian Sea. The ENSO Blog estimated a 75% chance that La Niña conditions would persist through the end of the year, in part due to a strengthening Walker circulation.[4].
