2019 NIO Cyclone Season

#1 Postby Imran_doomhaMwx » Mon Dec 31, 2018 10:34 pm

The 2018 season turned out to be an above average season, with many systems breaking/making records. Let's see what 2019 brings.

Next six storm names on the list:
FANI, VAYU, HIKAA, KYARR, MAHA, BULBUL

Looks like the upcoming El Nino will affect the performance of other TC basins, but as far as I know, ENSO has little effect on the Indian Ocean. However, what affects this basin more is the Indian Ocean Dipole(IOD), which you could say is the Indian Ocean version of ENSO. There seems to be a link between ENSO and IOD though. Any more thoughts/insights on this?

If forecasts verify, TC 36W will move into the Andaman Sea from the NWPac basin in a few days time. Likely to get named by JMA though. If it remains a TC after crossing Malay Peninsula, it will also be counted as the first NIO TC this 2019. Global models indicate that it won't last too long in the NIO though.

And that’s what happened! Pabuk was the earliest NIO storm on record.
