Monica was in April:

There are no names for cyclones prior to 1964 because they were not named back then.

Ah you beat me to it Michael.  April it was!  I've got enough photos of her to last a lifetime!!!!  I havea fond remark from the severe weather section at the Darwin BoM when i was making inquiries - he said 'Be alert but not alarmed'!!!

I think the whole city here was asleep to that fact!

Has anyone looked at the models for Pierre of late and what the expectations are?  I'm just a bit tied up to spend time searching all the relevant sites at the moment!  But i'd like to know some tech obs from the members who may have viewed the depression since Sunday.  thanks

Well checked the obs for interests sake...pretty lame indices.  Some small amount of shear in the mid-range on Sunday with some other factors favorable for a pulse - if at all!  Think the dam might get a top up from some shower activity.  The thought was nice of at least a weak low overhead.....

Thanks John. That list's really interesting. I thought it was unusual to have a cyclone this late.
I don't know, however, what some of the numbers mean. I can find the storm number, start date, end date, pressure (?) and storm name, but what are the other columns?

Thankyou

They are the extents of the latitude and longitude -
eg - 139  222  1143  1167  = 13.9 to 22.2 S,   116.7 to 116.7E
Helps with map plotting. A minus sign represents Western hemisphere
