A little something Santa has tucked away.




Dvorak initial classification of 1.5 at 181800 UTC. Recent IR images show
banding starting to form to the south of the system. Dvorak analyses yields a DT
of 2.5 from curved band and a MET/PAT of 2.5 based on development over the past
24 hours.

ASCAT at 0120 UTC showed 35 knot winds in the southeast quadrant. ASCAT at 1352
UTC showed 35 knot winds in the southwest quadrant.

Intensity set to 35 knots due to gales in the southern quadrants. But, due to
not wrapping more than half way round and Dvorak analyses, system is still
classified as a tropical low.

CIMSS at 1800 UTC showed the system in a shear ridge with shear estimated
between 10 and 20 knots.There is good upper divergence over the system with
outflow indicated in at least the southern qudrants. SSTs in the area are
between 29 and 30C. Conditions are favourable for development and it is likely
the low will develop into a tropical cyclone during Tuesday.

07U has developed from a surge in the monsoon NW flow. The system is expected to
be slow moving for the next 2 to 3 days. There is considerable model divergence
on the movement and intensity of the system, particularly in the longer term.
The development of another tropical low north of the Kimberley and subsequent
movement to the southwest is a definite influence on this system.

Latest track map has it swinging much more in a southerly direction. Hedland to Karratha may be a chance. The dozens of media outlets that have had Broome getting hit by 2 cyclones had better quickly edit there garbage stories. They must have been following social media rather than BOM. Haha. Maybe we need to bring in the fake news laws of Germany to social media to make them a little more accountable for their posts of continual speculation.

At least you call it for what it is Popeye. The track map that was shown on the news last night had the northern most topical low placed in the Gulf of Carpentaria and the second low was about 300kms directly north of Broome. Was a shocker. I think you will be proven right tho, K-town/Headland with 300-400mm, should just about settle the bloody dust.

If the go to EC model was an indicator of what to expect it's nothing but a fizzer crossing the coast. Such a waste of a good set up. Hopefully some good rains to kick the season off for everyone. NEXT....

BUT... If you were to base everything on what models said you no doubt have a high chance of getting it wrong these days so it could still cross as a CAT 5 lol.

Yeah Sepo it's frustrating watching from afar. Maybe the reason I'm hoping it fizzles. Hate to miss the action. Jtwc at least gets it up to 65knts before crossing so it might do something.

Definately enjoying this wet weather. Waiting patiently for this system to move. Currently almost stationery. Can we at least update the name of this thread to make it 'feel' closer?

Not surprised, have you seen the impact of the shear on the system overnight. Hard to watch a decent cyclone get blown apart frown Some decent convection this morning however, so life in the system yet.

Same Pops hope house is still floating luckily not too strong winds yet but with Yvette around no doubt they will be strengthening as she approaches the coast.

Strong Westerlies and I suspect a decent swell but luckily not big tides for next few days so coastal erosion hopefully wont be so bad...
Fingers crossed.

I think Yvette will just be a wet fart as she slips on by. Be interesting to see what happens. All sorts of records broken today. Oh well. Missed a bit of fun but heavy rain can only be so much fun for a limited time. Bring on the gnarly lightning shows now.

Wonder if the winds will pack a punch as forecast. Nothing extreme but saying 60km hr. Seems to be in the sweet spot for Broome to get the wind. Probably end up being 20-30knts.

Interesting to see how much rain we get from this system to add to the already broken December rainfall total record.

At least its only a low coming through on Xmas day hopefully the celebrations will be not affected too much by the wind and rain

Merry Xmas everyone.

I hope everyone back home is safe. The 2- 4 knot winds must have been devastating as it crossed the coast. Thankfully all those people that cancelled their holidays because of the cyclone are safe also. Biggest laughs of the year.

A place called Wulungurru in western inland NT just copped 100mm+ in the past 2 hours, they are now up to 145mm since 9am, on top of 100mm in the past 2 days. I'd imagine they have turned into an inland sea

Im sure an event like this would have made for interesting reading in one of Giles' journals.

TC Yvette turned out to be a big fizzer and was only TC for a short time .
Was really hoping it would at least give the Pilbara some good rain.

Glad we had the low before hand to give us some decent rain.
