TC outlook for coming summer issued by BoM today
Below average odds for all parts of Australia, but not that far below average that one would say no chance.
I actually find these near 50% (say 40% to 60% chance) of getting the average rather meaningless. Sort of like say half right / half wrong.
Anyway only time will tell. And as we have seen in the past what actually occurs with cyclones can be quite different to what climate "indicators" suggest. smile
Models are for estimating and gauges are for knowledge.

Also on the note of cyclones in their video they have stated that they can predict the probability of cyclones occurring but they can never guess the intensity of the system that forms.

ITCZ seems to be a fair way south compared to previous years at this time, also indicated by floods in Sumatra. Looking at charts it is roughly between 0 and 5N to our N and NW. 200Hpa charts also concur.
