south pacific cyclone season 2020

[203] All Raï bus routes were cancelled for March 15. [213][214] Atmospheric conditions were supportive of further intensification within the South Pacific as the storm tracked towards the southeast. On April 3, the Vanuatu National Disaster Management Office (VNDMO) issued a Yellow Alert for Torba and Sanma provinces in Vanuatu. Vanuatu + 10 more. This is the forum page for the 2020-21 South Pacific cyclone season. Nutfield001 (talk) 23:36, December 10, 2020 (UTC), Upgraded to a tropical disturbance per FMS and code orange on JTWC. [3] The outlook took into account the ENSO neutral conditions that had been observed across the Pacific and analog seasons, that had ENSO neutral and El Nino conditions occurring during the season. River and small stream flooding was also documented in Upolu. [222] Concurrently, an extension of an area of high pressure to Harold's east caused the storm's track to slow and curve increasingly southward. [3] At least four of the tropical cyclones were expected to intensify further and become severe tropical cyclones, while it was noted that a Category 5 severe tropical cyclone could occur during the season. Each tropical cyclone year within this basin starts on July 1 and runs throughout the year, encompassing the tropical cyclone season which runs from November 1 and lasts until April 30 each season. [155] Though the cyclone's rainbands expanded further, the storm's convection remained disorganised. [3] The FMS's outlook predicted that the Samoan Islands, Tokelau and Tuvalu had an increased chance of being impacted by a tropical cyclone, while Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Wallis & Futuna, New Caledonia, Tonga, Niue, the southern Cook Islands and French Polynesia's Austral Islands all had a normal chance of being impacted by a tropical cyclone. [50] Its center tracked near Nukuʻalofa on December 31 while the storm's structure rapidly deteriorated, with the JTWC issuing their final advisory that day. All COVID-19 preparedness activities were suspended to facilitate preparations and evacuations for Harold. During the season, tropical cyclones are officially monitored by the Fiji Meteorological Service (FMS), Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and New Zealand's MetService. [99] Associated showers and thunderstorms continued to coalesce within favourable atmospheric and oceanic conditions. After the cyclone was completed, a new eye formed. The South Pacific tropical cyclone season is typically from 1 November to 30 April. [28], During December 23, the FMS reported that Tropical Disturbance 03F had developed about 630 km (390 mi) to the west of Tuvalu. [161] Vicky produced damaging winds and heavy rain in the Samoan islands as an intensifying system. 3:28 pm on 14 December 2020 . [113] Ferry and bus services in several New Caledonian communes were suspended. [128][129] Despite lacking a clear wind circulation within a chaotic environment—the JTWC initially considered the disturbance to be a hybrid tropical system rather than a tropical cyclone—the region's warm sea surface temperatures and low wind shear were supportive of further organisation. In early February, another low originally in the Australian region crossed the 160th meridian east and emerged in the South Pacific. [146] Later that day, the center of 08F continued past the 25th parallel south, leading the FMS to issue their final tropical disturbance summary on the highly sheared system. [84], During January 24, the FMS reported that Tropical Disturbance 05F had developed about 75 km (45 mi) to the northwest of Pago-Pago in American Samoa. Keep betting pools off this page - there are separate forum pages for those. [117] One person was injured while securing their roof in preparation for the storm. It maintained the intensity for only 6 hours before weakening back to a Category 4-equivalent cyclone. Related News 'Prepare to evacuate': Two cyclones … It also has a very large and well-defined eye with seemingly annular traits, so Yasa could maintain its intensity before striking Fiji. [63] Throughout the early part of the storm's development, a strong band of convection persisted north of the centre of circulation.

End of 2019/ 2020 South Pacific Cyclone Season Report - Localisation during Overlapping Responses: COVID-19 Pandemic & Tropical Cyclone Harold [93][94] A tropical cyclone formation alert was subsequently issued by the JTWC early on February 8, as convection improved near the centre of the storm; at the time, 06F was centered 653 km (406 mi) northwest of Port Vila, Vanuatu. The 2019–20 South Pacific cyclone season was a slightly above-average season in which tropical cyclones formed within the South Pacific Ocean to the east of 160°E. The FMS, BoM and MetService all use the Australian Tropical Cyclone Intensity Scale and estimate wind speeds over a period of ten minutes, while the JTWC estimated sustained winds over a 1-minute period, which are subsequently compared to the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale (SSHWS), Ahead of the cyclone season formally starting, the Fiji Meteorological Service (FMS), Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM), New Zealand's MetService and National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) and various other Pacific Meteorological services, all contributed towards the Island Climate Update tropical cyclone outlook that was released during October 2019. At 12:00 UTC on February 12, the FMS passed primary responsibility for Uesi over to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology's (BOM) warning centre in Brisbane,[108] who indicated that the system had weakened to a high-end Category 2 tropical cyclone. The GEFS ensemble hints at this becoming a decently strong C1-equivalent cyclone (SSHWS). [190][191] Forced southeast by a nearby subtropical ridge,[192] The storm passed 150 km (93 mi) south of New Caledonia on March 15. Tropical cyclone Yasa, the first severe tropical cyclone of the 2020/21 South Pacific cyclone season, is steamrolling its way towards Fiji. [97] Later that day, the FMS named the storm Uesi, and upgraded it to a category 2 tropical cyclone. [2][3] The Island Climate Update Outlook predicted that American Samoa, French Polynesia's Austral Islands, Niue, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu as well as the Solomon Islands and Southern Cook Islands had an elevated chance, while the Wallis and Futuna had a normal to elevated chance of being impacted by a tropical cyclone. Hurricane Wiki is a FANDOM Lifestyle Community. Tropical cyclones affect Pacific island countries in most years and can impact coastal regions even when they remain well offshore. The first tropical cyclone of the season is brewing across the South Pacific and it can bring impacts to Fiji and Vanuatu. The Fiji National Disaster Management Office (FDNMO) activated their Emergency Operations Centre to streamline preparations and evacuations. Tropical cyclone season starts in South Pacific region ... said on Monday that at least two to four tropical cyclones are expected to pass through the island nation during the 2020/2021 season. Kadavu Island was hit the worst as the storm's center passed over the island. [123] Power outages afflicted at least 3,900 households serviced by EEC and Enercal and over 5,000 overall. [2] It was thought by the FMS that there was an increased risk of the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Wallis & Futuna, Tokelau, the Samoan Islands, Tonga and Niue being impacted by at least one severe tropical cyclone, while other areas such as the Cook Islands and parts of French Polynesia had a normal to reduced chance of being impacted by a severe tropical cyclone.[2]. The system was poorly organised, with a high wind shear environment displacing convection to the northeast of the low-level center of circulation as the disturbance moved southeast to east-southeast. [105] An increase in vertical wind shear from the northwest on February 12 caused the convective structure of the cyclone to weaken, resulting in the low-level circulation centre becoming exposed from the central dense overcast. The depression reached tropical cyclone intensity by 06:00 UTC on November 24 near the Santa Cruz Islands, earning the name Rita. Be sure to include the link to the forecast, as well as any major information (e.g. Cyclones Yasa and Zazu were both named by authorities on Monday, the first in the South Pacific for this summer's cyclone season. The season runs throughout the year, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October. [196][197] The addition of strong vertical wind shear caused Gretel's remaining showers and thunderstorms to dislocate from the central vortex. Please let another user know if you have any further questions. The FMS attaches a number and an F suffix to tropical disturbances that form in or move into the basin while the JTWC designates significant tropical cyclones with a number and a P suffix. In contrast, the FMS expects C1 (AUS scale) strength at the end of their forecast period. [11][12][13] A well-defined and formative eye soon developed beneath the central cloud cover.

[4] They predicted that the Western region between 142.5°E and 165°E, had a 54% chance of seeing activity above its average of 4 tropical cyclones. [157] On February 21, the FMS issued their final advisory on Vicky once it transitioned into an ex-tropical system. Red alerts eventually encompassed Malampa, Penama, Sanma, and Torba provinces, with a yellow alert for Shefa Province. Following a decrease in wind shear, the FMS upgraded 04F to a tropical depression on January 15 as it began to organize. [29][30] The disturbance was also located underneath an upper ridge of high pressure within a favourable environment for further development, with low to moderate vertical windshear and warm sea surface temperatures of 29–30 °C (84–86 °F). [126], During February 14, the FMS reported that Tropical Disturbance 07F had developed, about 490 km (305 mi) to the northeast of Funafuti in Tuvalu. [75] A Tropical Cyclone Warning was subsequently issued for Rotuma on January 15, and a Tropical Cyclone Alert for the rest of the Fijian islands. It rapidly intensified into a Category 5 Severe tropical cyclone as it impacted Vanuatu. [133] 10F was upgraded to a tropical depression 12 hours after its initial designation. [231][232][233] Rainfall associated with the passing storm also caused flooding, forcing dozens of families out of their homes. [149] The east-southeastward-moving storm was upgraded to a tropical depression the next day, prompting routine advisories from the FMS. [74] Similarly, a Heavy Rain Alert was issued by the FMS on January 14 for western parts of Fiji. [38][39], Due to an area of high pressure to its east, Sarai took a southerly course during its early stages as a named system. [215][216] On April 3, Harold began to quickly gain in organisation and intensity, developing tightly wound rainbands and a pinhole eye. ; Please keep off-topic and political discussion to a minimum, and respect the guidelines listed to the right. [180] Downpours from Wasi spread over the islands of Upolu and Savai'i. Large waves along the island's coast forced the closure of the seawall road. [51] The FMS continued monitoring the system as an ex-cyclone as the storm accelerated eastward, highlighting a low possibility for regeneration;[52] the agency ultimately issued their final bulletin on the system on January 2. In early April, Harold also entered the basin from the Australian region. The season featured Cyclone Harold, the first Category 5 severe tropical cyclone in the basin since Cyclone Gita, and one of the strongest since Cyclone Winston. Super cyclone Yasa slammed into Fiji's second-largest island Thursday, tearing roofs off buildings as it triggered flash floods and landslides in the Pacific island nation. The Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department also issued a tropical cyclone warning for these areas. On April 8, the storm passed just south of Fiji and passed over Kadavu Island. [110], Vanuatu and the French territory of New Caledonia were threatened by Uesi along its southward trek through the South Pacific basin. [140] Power outages affected Tutuila in American Samoa, where airports closed as the storm passed. Jas (Anonymous 2.0) (talk) 09:39, 18 December 2020 (UTC), Yasa's extratropical transition has completed and is now an extratropical cyclone. Absorption of this system by 01F seems to be the most probable scenario. 03F currently has a 'Very Low' chance of formation, expected to rise to 'Low' by the start of next week. [20][21] This made Rita one of the strongest first storms to form in the South Pacific since the formation of Mick in 2009, as many others were merely depressions or disturbances. Also, be nice and remain civil. [212] The Australian territory of Norfolk Island recorded maximum 10-minute sustained winds of 57 km/h (35 mph) and a maximum gust to 83 km/h (52 mph) on March 16. The following storms were named in this manner: This table lists all the storms that developed in the South Pacific to the east of longitude 160°E during the 2019–20 season. And thus, both warning centers downgraded the system. [219] Afterwards, the storm recurved eastwards and accelerated before turning east-southeastwards. [90] During January 26, the JTWC subsequently issued their final warning on the system after it had dissipated. [3], In addition to contributing towards the Island Climate Update outlook, the FMS and the BoM issued their own seasonal forecasts for the South Pacific region. [100] However, the presence of dry air slowed Uesi's intensification. [59] Deep convection continued to accompany the developing wind circulation over the following days as conditions grew more favourable, though the wind field remained broad and disorganised. [2][4] The BoM issued two seasonal forecasts for the Southern Pacific Ocean, for their self-defined eastern and western regions of the South Pacific Ocean. The final advisory has been issued by the JTWC, although NZ's MetService will still be issuing advisories. [137] While the threat of both 07F and nearby 08F lessened on February 18, warnings remained posted due to the persistence of the active convergence zone. [104] Guided southward by the nearby influence of a subtropical ridge to its east, Uesi moved southward, passing west of New Caledonia. Nutfield001 (talk) 07:33, December 14, 2020 (UTC), Still alive, although in extratropical form. [85][87] As a result, atmospheric convection started to wrap into the system's consolidating low-level circulation center, which prompted the JTWC to issue a tropical cyclone formation alert on the disturbance. [158], Flights to Pago Pago were cancelled indefinitely by Samoa Airways, with delays impacting Faleolo International Airport. 07F turned towards the southwest by February 20, where strong wind shear began to degrade the convective structure of the system. [188], During March 15, Tropical Cyclone Gretel moved into the basin from the Australian region, about 620 km (385 mi) to the northwest of Nouméa in New Caledonia. [200] Classes at the University of New Caledonia on March 16–17 were closed at their Nouméa and Koné campuses;[205] the Collège de Païamboué also closed its classes. It then began to track into an area unfavorable for intensification due to the presence of wind shear and cool dry air,[22] resulting in a rapid decay of the storm's convection and a decrease of the storm's maximum winds. [228][229] The FMS is expecting C5 intensity (AUS scale again) by the time it races southeastwards towards Fiji. Harold was the first severe tropical cyclone to strike Vanuatu since Cyclone Pam in 2015, bringing gusts above 275 km/h (170 mph), 250–450 mm (10–18 in) of rain, and a storm surge of 0.8 m (2.6 ft) causing catastrophic damage, torrential flooding and communication disruptions and plunging Vanuatu into a blackout. Later that day, at 1:00 P.M. local time, the storm made landfall on Espiritu Santo. Almost a Category 5 on JTWC too (135 knots). [153][154] Continuing to track towards the east-southeast, the depression strengthened into a Category 1 tropical cyclone later that day, receiving the name Vicky. 14 Dec 2020. The season officially ran from November 1, 2019 to April 30, 2020, however a tropical cyclone could form at any time between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020 and would count towards the season total. Please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~).Place comments that start a new topic at the bottom of the page and give them a descriptive header. [164] A 120 km/h (75 mph) gust was measured in Pago Pago International Airport in American Samoa and sustained winds of 85 km/h (50 mph) were observed in Tutuila. Significant development is likely to be hindered though given the relative proximity of 01F, although their outlook is hinting at 02F becoming the dominant system. The crews of hundreds of ocean-going yachts fear being stranded in the Pacific islands during cyclone season with usual safe havens in New Zealand and Australia closed because of … [133] The disturbance was located within an area of low vertical windshear while atmospheric convection persisted over and had started to wrap into the systems low-level circulation centre. Nutfield001 (talk) 02:05, 18 December 2020 (UTC), Now C2 on Australian scale, C1 on SSHWS. [122] Gusts of up to 120 km/h (75 mph) impacted New Caledonia's central mountain range. Typhoon tracking maps, current sea temperatures, and more. [73], Warnings for heavy rain were issued for all of the Solomon Islands and four Vanuatuan provinces by their respective National Meteorological and Hydrological Services. Jas (Anonymous 2.0) (talk) 13:42, 17 December 2020 (UTC), Downgraded to a C3 (AUS scale) and to a C2 (SSHWS) a few hours after exiting Vanua Levu. Nutfield001 (talk) 07:21, 20 December 2020 (UTC), Another tropical disturbance is being tracked by the FMS. [56], On January 10, an area of low pressure formed just east of the Solomon Islands and was forecast by the FMS to track towards the southeast, exhibiting some potential to develop further into a tropical cyclone. Nutfield001 (talk) 04:18, December 13, 2020 (UTC), Now named. 1 Seasonal Summary 2 Systems 2.1 Tropical Low 01F 2.2 Tropical Cyclone Zazu 2.3 Severe Tropical Cyclone Ana 2.4 Severe Tropical Cyclone Bina 2.5 Tropical Low 05F 2.6 Tropical Cyclone Cody 2.7 Tropical Cyclone Dovi 2.8 Severe Tropical Cyclone Eva [14] Continuing to intensify in favorable atmospheric conditions, Rita reached Category 2 cyclone strength by November 25 and Category 3 intensity six hours later. [93] At this time the system was poorly organised with deep atmospheric convection displaced, to the northeast of the system's weak and ill-defined low level circulation center. [109] The extratropical remnants of Uesi reentered the South Pacific basin on a southeasterly heading towards South Island on February 15. The latest typhoon watches and warnings for the South Pacific Basin. [5] Showers and thunderstorms began to aggregate in the region atop sea surface temperatures above 29 °C (84 °F) in low-wind shear conditions. [23][24] The FMS issued their last advisory on Rita on November 26 after the storm was downgraded to a remnant area of low pressure; at the time these remnants were slowly moving west-southwest towards northern Vanuatu. [167] A transient eye-like feature emerged on satellite imagery early on February 22, suggesting a cyclone stronger than its organisation suggested. 2020–21 South Pacific cyclone season (Sandy156) Season summary map. Cyclone warnings were issued for the entirety of the Solomon Islands as Harold approached on April 3. [230] Strong winds blew down trees in Honiara, causing power outages and blocking roads. The former agency forecasts strengthening to a C1 (AUS scale) by midday tomorrow (presumably local time) and is expected to be the dominant system, potentially absorbing 01F. The JTWC forecast raises Yasa's peak to 110kts (125mph, high-end C3). Not currently invested or tracked by the JTWC at the moment. 2019–20 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, Australian Tropical Cyclone Intensity Scale, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, United States Department of Veterans Affairs, List of Southern Hemisphere cyclone seasons, Tropical Cyclone Guidance for Season 2010/11 for the Fiji and the Southwest Pacific, 2019–20 Tropical Cyclone Season Outlook [in the] Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre Nadi – Tropical Cyclone Centre (RSMC Nadi – TCC) Area of Responsibility (AOR), Southwest Pacific Tropical Cyclone Outlook - October 2019, "South Pacific Tropical Cyclone Outlook for 2019 to 2020", Tropical Cyclone 01P (One) Warning NR 001, Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System, Tropical Cyclone 01P (One) Warning NR 002, Tropical Cyclone 01P (Rita) Warning NR 007, Tropical Cyclone 01P (Rita) Warning NR 005, Tropical Cyclone 01P (Rita) Warning NR 009, Tropical Cyclone 01P (Rita) Warning NR 011, "Cyclone Rita becomes category two storm", "Vanuatu - Tropical Cyclone RITA update (GDACS, JTWC, VMGD, media) (ECHO Daily Flash of 27 November 2019)", Tropical Cyclone Naming Bulletin December 26, 2019 12z, Fiji Climate Summary: December 2019 Volume 40: Issue 12, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 006, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 008, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 010, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 013, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 016, Tropical Cyclone 04P (Sarai) Warning NR 021, "Hundreds flee lowlands as Cyclone Sarai sweeps past Fiji", "Tropical Cyclone Sarai claims two lives as more than 2,000 remain under evacuation in Fiji", "FRA confirms $5 million damage from TC Sarai", Tropical Cyclone - 5 Day Outlook (9 January 2020), Tropical Cyclone - 5 Day Outlook (10 January 2020), Tropical Cyclone 08P (Tino) Warning NR 001, Tropical Cyclone 08P (Tino) Warning NR 004, Tropical Cyclone 08P (Tino) Warning NR 006, Tropical Cyclone 08P (Tino) Warning NR 011, "Cyclone Tino downgraded but remnants to pummel eastern coastline", Heavy Rain Alert Now in Force for Parts of the Fiji Group, "Cruises Canceled as Fiji Prepares for a Tropical Cyclone (Video)", "Evacuation centres opened as Cyclone Tino aims for Fiji, Tonga", "TD04F: Northerners prepare for approaching storm", "TD04F: Udu villagers advised to move inland", "TD04F: FNU advises northern staff and students to stay home", "Fiji calls for urgent action on climate crisis as second cyclone hits in three weeks", "Cyclone Tino: 2 missing as cyclone gains strength over Fiji", Tropical Cyclone 12P January 25, 2020 15z, https://www.nrlmry.navy.mil//tcdat/tc20/SHEM/12P.TWELVE/trackfile.txt, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Fifteen) Warning NR 001, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Fifteen) Warning NR 004, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Uesi) Warning NR 005, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Uesi) Warning NR 009, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Uesi) Warning NR 011, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Uesi) Warning NR 013, Tropical Cyclone 15P (Uesi) Warning NR 014, "Tropical Cyclone Uesi Technical Bulletin #3 (12Z)", Tropical Cyclone Potential Bulletin, 2249 UTC 14 Feb 2020, "Vanuatu issues warnings for new Tropical Cyclone", "La dépression tropicale 06F poursuit son évolution", "Dépression tropicale forte Uesi : la Calédonie en préalerte à midi", "Des bus Raï annulés en raison de l'approche d'Uesi", "Uesi: les navettes maritimes suspendues jusqu'à nouvel ordre", "Cyclone Uesi : la livraison des Nouvelles perturbée", "Approche de la dépression Uesi, les conséquences", "Nouvelle-Calédonie.
