Yep. Local woman spreading the "CYCLONE" to local pages. Not really sure she appreciated my comment about it not being expected to impact the east coast. Sort of took the drama away from her.

For goodness sake. It is the wet season, cyclone season, flood season, drought season. If they aren't prepared for weather they never will be.

I often frown at what media says
But ultimately they run with a combination of what they are told and know
So does it mean they need to know more, or be told more?

Watch the cyclone sail away towards the SE?

Maybe there will be a window when the current westerly burst finishes up in the Pacific. If the trade winds surge again then anything formed on the tail end of this MJO/westerly burst may be pushed towards the coast, at least in the lower levels. Not going to look at what the uppper's are forecast as I don't want to.

I did look a bit more into the Tasman Sea situation at charts for last 90 days etc, and to me it looks like there is a solid ridge through the middle and upper levels over the warm water. Much of the jetstream is pushed to the south around the blockage, but some of it is instead going around it to the north, hence higher shear and upper troughing through the coral sea.

For the life of me I can’t understand why the papers put so much weight into anything that Hollywood says. What’s almost gag worthy is the people fawning over him in the comments. Anybody would think there isn’t an organisation full of well educated, qualified individuals whose very job it is to know about the weather.

The headline was “Higgins issues cyclone watch”. What in the wotime Le? Who is he to be issuing anything, let alone cyclone watch. Next he’ll be telling his followers weather to use the emergency broadcast sirens before broadcasting updates.

I honestly believe the media grab anything anyone says and jam it on the front page putting people who havent been following (which is a lot) into a panic and smash the tin food water and milk i saw a pallet of water out the front of coles yesterday so coles are cashing in on peoples insecurities. The media would know damn well what is happening and im calling it. There had to be some kind of handshake agreement between the bully and perhaps others at higher levels im no conspiricy chaser but this happens way to often for it to be anything else i wrecken. Im happy to be wrong or proven wrong. However im a union member and delegate and i know and have sen these games played there is nothing really wrong with it but it sucks when i cant get milk and because they are pumping the water and levels are low ee drink bottled water. Lol i have written a book the main reason i even came here was to ask you guys if there was any way to open forum from the app or a different app instead of doing it through browser??? Have a nice day guys wishing in some rain and wind here in townsville. If not the wind just some desperately needed rain over the catchment would be great. Later Gaz

Higgins. Lol. I questioned why they had us on cyclone watch when every model had any potential cyclone moving away. I was promptly blocked. And I wasn't even a smart ass about it! Then some of the idiots in high places in the media run his 'advice' as gospel because his 'advice' is the most headline-worthy. And even then they exaggerate his word.

I had never heard of Higgins before this conversation. Who is this character. Talk about arrogant, and of course misleading. From my brief look tonight he appears to be operating as a service, can the ACCC do anything?

Well that's just it -- issue proper warnings, or don't issue them at all I'd think...!

Loc: Kirwan, Townsville - NQld.
he is the most over hyped person i have seen on line. some of his forecasts (claims more like it) are a joke. imo, a stain on the weather community. has no responsibility at all and sadly is followed by well over half a million people on facebook. this latest stunt just proves he has no morals, and is happy to put up a dodgy headline in the hope of more clicks.
sadly, the media fell for it and roped the BOM into, and when things dont got to plan, people then blame the BOM.

It'd be good if the media questioned his forcast instead of publishing him
And giving him more exposure. Slightly off topic - a few years back he predicted super rains or some similar description over the Xmas/new year period. He and his Facebook page ended up being quoted online and on the tv. The local caravan park was booked solid but lost 30% of the bookings because of all of the hype. In the end we got sunshowers and overcast days, and very little in the way of rain. I remember looking at the models and thinking where on earth is this bloke getting his info from!

Ok I'll shut up now smile no more mention of the 'H' word.

Its all the stupid media's fault. He is a snake oil merchant sucking money from the gullible and stupid. Dont think there is a law against stupid people buying snake oil?
