[34] TCWC Darwin began issuing advisories on the tropical low at 00:00 UTC on 4 March. From Bureau of Meteorology, www.bom.gov.au [38] At 00:00 UTC on 6 March, TCWC Darwin upgraded Blanche to a Category 2 cyclone on the Australian tropical cyclone intensity scale, with 10-minute sustained winds of 95 km/h (60 mph) and a minimum barometric pressure of 988 hPa (29.18 inHg); this marked the cyclone's official peak intensity. The first noted as it developed within a monsoon trough to the northwest of Christmas Island during 23 September, but was not expected to develop any further as it moved southwards towards the Australian territory. [citation needed], During 27 November, a tropical low developed within the northern Coral Sea, to the southwest of the Solomon Islands. [4] Over the next couple of days, the system moved south-westwards and gradually developed further as it moved into the Timor Sea, where it reached its peak intensity with 10-minute sustained winds of 55 km/h (35 mph) and a minimum pressure of 995 hPa (29.38 inHg). During that day, the system turned westwards and weakened below tropical cyclone intensity into a remnant low during 1 May. Australian region tropical cyclone warnings, forecasts, seasonal outlooks, cyclone history, climatology and related information On the morning of 21 April, the BOM started tracking a tropical low which had formed about 200 km (124 mi) west of Port Moresby. The 2016–17 season opened with a tropical system in the Western Region on 23 September, just more than a month before the official start of the season. [2] It was also noted that the first tropical cyclone landfall might be later than usual, with the average first landfall taking place in January during El Niño conditions. The northwest coast within Western Australia is the most common area for cyclones to occur within the nation due to the temperature shifts that result in warm, moist air. [46] Roadways were shut down due to street flooding. [32], Early on 2 March, TCWC Darwin noted a developing tropical low in the north Arafura Sea,[33] followed promptly by the JTWC that afternoon. The 2016–17 Australian region cyclone season, despite a very high number of tropical lows, was a slightly below-average season in terms of activity, with nine tropical cyclones, three of which intensified further into severe tropical cyclones; though it was much more active than the previous season. The basin subsequently remained quiet with only several weak tropical lows developing, before the first named tropical cyclone of the season was named Stan during 29 January 2016. Category 1 strength hurricane-force winds formed around 9:30 am AWST the same day, near Rowley Shoales where Stan was 100 km south of the island. In the period of the 28-29 of September 2016 South Australia was hit by a mid-latitude cyclone.

[2] It was forecast that the region would less active than during previous years, with a 91% chance of a below average amount of tropical cyclones, because of the strong El Niño episode that had developed over the Pacific Ocean. [40] Around 03:00 UTC that day, Blanche moved ashore a largely uninhabited region of western Australia, the latest instance of the country's first tropical cyclone landfall for any season on record. [44] The Darwin River Dam spillway was topped to ease potential flooding, and additional staff were allocated at local hospitals. The season officially ran from 1 November 2016 to 30 April 2017, however, a tropical cyclone could form at any time between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017 and would count towards the season total.

[53] Assuming a course to the southwest, the system developed into a Category 2 cyclone by 12:00 UTC on 25 March, and maintained this strength until the early morning of 27 March (local time) due to less favourable conditions for intensification. [53] The torrential rainfall in the region caused the overflowing of the Pioneer River, and the subsequent need for nearly 100 people to be rescued from floodwaters in western Mackay. Over the next few days, the system remained over water and dissipated during 15 February after it had produced some powerful, long period swells along Queensland beaches. Large swells developed ahead of Ex-TC Winston on the Queensland coast with significant wave heights of 3-5m and wave period of around 15 seconds. The basin subsequently remained quiet with only several weak tropical lows developing, before the first named tropical cyclone of the season was named Stan during 29 January 2016. [4], In addition to contributing towards the Island Climate Update outlook, the BoM issued seven seasonal forecasts during October 2015, for the Australian region and the Southern Pacific with each forecast covering the whole tropical cyclone year. [3] For the North-Western sub-region between 105°E and 130°E, it was predicted that activity would be above average, with a 63% chance of above-average tropical cyclone activity. A vast cyclone has crashed into Australia's northern coast, bringing torrential rains and winds of up to 250km/h (155 mph). The low moved in a westward direction until on 5 March, the BoM started issuing bulletins on the system with the designation of 12U and winds of 65 km/h (40 mph), however, it was still classified as a tropical low since gale-force winds were only found in the southern quadrants. Later that day the system passed about 100 km (62 mi) to the northwest of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, before conditions became favorable for further development as the system moved away from the islands. [2] TCWC Perth also noted that there was a likelihood of two tropical cyclones and a significant likelihood of at least one severe tropical cyclone impacting Western Australia.
