Tropical Cyclone Bianca
« on: 30 January 2011, 01:15:06 AM »
I have been monitoring the track of TC Bianca over the last few days and suprisingly it is now set to make landfall on the south-west coast of W.A. somewhere in the vicinity of Perth! Forecasters are predicting it will cross the coast as a tropical low, but have warned there is a chance it may maintain cyclone intensity.

I can't ever recall a cyclone tracking that far south out of the tropics before. Perhaps has something to do with warmer surface sea temperatures from the La Nina weather pattern that is currently in effect. What do others think?

Cheers all,
Chris.

I have just read that the last time a TC landed in the Perth area was TC Alby in 1978, resulting in 5 fatalities.

Cheers all,
