Here are some other links that I have come across.

This is a site that contains numerous charts and predictions for the MJO:

I like to use this for finding a LLCC in the formative stage of TC development. It has other uses too.

http://manati.orbit.nesdis.noaa.gov/quikscat/

These maps display the ocean surface winds at a 10m height from satellite passes as processed by NOAA/NESDIS, from near real-time data collected by NASA/JPL's SeaWinds Scatterometer aboard the QuikSCAT satelite.

Wind speed and Queensland building codes

There have been a few questions about what rating means what so i did a bit of homework and came up with the following information:
Qld timber framing wind speeds
C = Cyclone area. On or above the tropic of Capricorn
N = Non Cyclone area. Below the Tropic of Capricorn

C1 50 meters per sec = 150KPH
C2 61 metres per sec = 219 KPH
C3 74 metres per sec = 266KPH

N1 34 meters per sec = 122KPH
N2 40 meters per sec = 144KPH
N3 50 meters per sec = 150KPH
N4 61 meters per sec = 219KPH

This is a great site to track the progression of the MJO using the Multivariate MJO Index. This includes phase diagrams, time-longitude plots etc.

http://www.bom.gov.au/bmrc/clfor/cfstaff/matw/maproom/RMM/index.htm

A lot of people probably already know about this site but for those who don't this is great.

and Australian region maps from both BoM and JTWC data:

http://australiasevereweather.com/cyclones/seasonal_comparison_aust.htm


The pages might makes things a little easier when wondering how seasons compare generally over the years. I can extend the Australian region maps with BoM data back to 1906/07 but then the page will get a bit long and slow to load. Any suggestions as to how these pages should be set up / broken up to be more useful are certainly welcome.

There are extensive archives of TC maps that most of you are already aware of - but please, if you have any ideas for presentation of data or different maps, let me know smile

JTWC data goes back to 1945 so I'll be adding those seasons prior to 1980/81 as I get time.

Hey guys,

Another member here introduced me to this site, which has a beautiful selection of satellite imagery in and around Australia:

http://realtime2.bsch.au.com/vis_sat.html

But something weird happened, and it stopped updating on 09 January. frown Can anyone recommend another site like this, that has so many high-res, close-up, regional shots of the tropical waters around Australia? I'd be deeply obliged.

Thanks! smile

Probably a java script problem not being rendered correctly. Download the latest version and see if that cures it. If not jump onto the Firefox whinge fest I mean forum (there should be an inbuilt link in the FF menu somewhere) and see what else it could be.

I thought some of you who are into the mathematics behind meteorology might enjoy this very interesting paper about the influence that the ocean has upon atmospheric global circulations and short range climatic fluctuations. If this is not the right thread for such material-please advise.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A TC

Here is an excellent link for those new to Meteorology. This answers all (or most) of your questions about identifying a TC. Note: circulation is opposite in southern hemisphere.

Very interesting and informative link, there, to give people a grounding in tropical weather.
For Australian readers, though, it would need to be read together with the BoM's cyclone information pages, including this one "About Tropical Cyclones"

Looks like you can only view that link from inside the BoM?

It might be handy to have a section of links specifically for archived satellite images. I know one of these sites has already been mentioned but it might be worth specifically pointing out its use for animating archived satellite imagery.

For example:
Satellite Imagery Archives
http://realtime2.bsch.au.com/vis_sat.html - Provides animation of archived MTSAT-1R images for the Australian region including the colorized IR images for the last 14 days.
http://internationalweatherarchive.org/satViewer.aspx - Provides animation of archived MTSAT-1R IR and visible full-disk images for what appears to be at least the last 2 months and possibly longer.

As a beginner, I found this quite useful, thanks.

Led me to what I found to be interesting info on "Model error trends" which although focuses on Atlantic region, I imagine would still indicate general model trends? Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, or remove if unsuitable.

Here's a heap Ken Kato put up elsewhere.

Overall I know you can count these runs to be completely different tomorrow but it still paints a picture of some exciting weather.

There's actually a huge range of websites these days where you can view high resolution daily SST's, much of them derived from satellite data. Here's a few of them:

http://images.remss.com/hurricane/active_storms_sst.swp.html (you can clearly see the cooled waters in the Coral Sea)

http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDY00002.shtml

http://www.bom.gov.au/oceanography/forecasts/idyoc13.shtml?region=13&forecast=1 (7 day forecast SST's for the next 7 days)

http://www.marine.csiro.au/~lband/web_point/ (interactive point and click map to obtain SST's for every gridpoint)

I've included an example from the CSIRO below (off the north tropical coast for yesterday). The SST's are colour-shaded (the white contours represent sea level & the black arrows represent direction/speed of surface currents).

Below that image is the experimental TC formation probability map for the next 48hrs (til 10pm Sun) from RAMMB/NOAA/CIRA based on latest satellite sounding data of TC ingredients such as SST's, shear, vorticity, etc and past TC's:
