Gati later became a Category 3 tropical cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, and made landfall in the Arabian Peninsula. The other half, 2020 began with the arrival of Tropical Depression 01F on November 22, near the Solomon Islands, which would later become Tropical Cyclone Rita. On December 8, a disturbance formed near Fiji, starting the 2020–21 South Pacific Ocean cyclone season, it gradually intensified into a depression and attained a tropical storm status according to JTWC. The scope of the season is limited to the Indian Ocean in the Northern Hemisphere, east of the Horn of Africa and west of the Malay Peninsula. Near the end of the month, Gonzalo, Hanna and Isaias marked the earliest seventh, eighth, and ninth-named storms on record in the Atlantic, beating the record set by Gert, Harvey and Irene all in 2005 respectively. Furthermore, Bertha formed in the Atlantic and marked the first time since 2016 that two pre-season storms have formed in the Atlantic, as well as the first time since 2012 that two tropical depressions or storms formed in the month of May. As the season was reaching January, it already has seen four tropical cyclones throughout the second half of 2019. No tropical cyclones developed until January 19, which was very late in the calendar year. [46] The increasingly elongated circulation of Gati emerged over the Gulf of Aden by 12:00 UTC,[47] and the JTWC issued their final advisory on the system shortly thereafter.[48]. Tropical Disturbance 02F was designated sometime later, but didn't last long after that. In addition, it was the fifth consecutive above average Atlantic hurricane season from 2016 onward. After fifteen years, the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has surpassed record high activity in terms of named storms. It's remnants formed ARB 03. In June, Severe Cyclonic Storm Nisarga became the first storm in the new thirteen-list naming system. Tropical cyclones are primarily monitored by a group of ten warning centres, which have been designated as a Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) or a Tropical Cyclone Warning Center (TCWC) by the World Meteorological Organization. Near the end of the month, Dolly formed in the North Atlantic Ocean and became the third-earliest fourth named storm in the basin on record but dissipated before reaching inland. Iota was also the most intense hurricane of the season with a minimum central pressure of 917 mbar. Also not officially included is Medicane Ianos, which developed in the Mediterranean Sea and is included for record-keeping purposes only. In the Australian region, one low formed which started the 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season which crossed the South-West Indian Ocean basin and intensified into a cyclone which was later named Bongoyo. One of them dissipated later. [33][34] By 18 November, a weak low-level circulation developed about 1,185 km (735 mi) east-southeast of Socotra. It mentions all of the season's storms and their names, duration, peak intensities (according to the IMD storm scale), damage, and death totals. Hurricane Eta in early November also caused $7 billion (2020 USD) in damage and was the deadliest storm of the season, causing over two hundred deaths as it crossed the vast majority of Central America and eventually made three more landfalls: one in Cuba, and two in Florida. Yasa became the most powerful tropical cyclone of 2020 beating Goni with a minimum barometric pressure of 899 mb (26.55 inHg) and maximum wind speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). This was the fastest intensification during such a short period ever observed in the North Indian Ocean basin. [40][41] Classified as a "midget system" by the JTWC with a core diameter of only 120 km (70 mi) and a 27 km (17 mi) wide eye, Gati explosively intensified that morning. Additionally, the Western Pacific typhoon season produced 5 storms, three of which became tropical storms: Noul, Dolphin, and Kujira. Blake would later make landfall in northwestern Australia and soon degenerate afterwards. The system began bringing torrential rainfall to Sri Lanka and Southern India. Should a named tropical cyclone move into the basin from the Western Pacific, then it will retain its original name. On November 22, an area of low pressure was formed in the Bay of Bengal, off the coast of Tamil Nadu. 2020-21 Cyan Cyclone Season is an ongoing season that started on November 1, 2020, and will end on May 30, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the response to tropical cyclones during the year. | NOAA Climate.gov", https://www.climate.gov/news-features/blogs/enso/september-2020-enso-update-la-ni%C3%B1a-here, "Giant storm hits Vanuatu amid coronavirus state of emergency", "Typhoon Vongfong hits Philippines, coronavirus hampers evacuation", "Tens of thousands under lockdown evacuate as Typhoon Vongfong strikes Philippines", "Sorsogon imposes distancing measure in evac centers amid threat of Typhoon Ambo", "NDRRMC urges LGUs to prepare for 'Bagyong Ambo, "India, Bangladesh Tell Millions to Evacuate as Tropical Cyclone Amphan Approaches", "Hurricane Amanda kills 14 people in El Salvador", "At least 50 die due to rain, floods in Telangana; 27 in Maharashtra", "Fiji reports 4 deaths due to tropical cyclone Yasa", Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysical Agency of Indonesia, Australian Bureau of Meteorology (TCWC's Perth, Darwin & Brisbane), Papua New Guinea National Weather Service, Meteorological Service of New Zealand Limited, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Tropical_cyclones_in_2020&oldid=996000533, Articles needing additional references from December 2020, All articles needing additional references, Wikipedia articles incorporating text from the National Weather Service, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 24 December 2020, at 00:27. [55] At this time, microwave imagery showed well-defined convective banding wrapping tightly around the low-level circulation (LLCC). [42] Within a 12-hour period, the JTWC estimated one-minute sustained winds to have increased from 65 km/h (40 mph) to a peak of 185 km/h (115 mph). In the North Indian Ocean, BOB 02, ARB 03 and BOB 03 formed which caused the delay of the withdrawal of southwest monsoon season and flash flooding in Telengana and Maharashtra. It was a weak storm. As the month began, both Calvinia and Sarai were weakening and gradually dissipated over the next few days. The season's first cyclone developed on May 16, and activity was unprecedented after Arthur formed, with an additional off-season storm forming having been named Tropical Storm Bertha. [29], On October 20, a low pressure formed over Central Bay of Bengal. [8] More than 50 people were rescued from floods. These statistics are typical of a La Nina that has been persisting since the beginning of the year. The Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) in Oman advised residents to exercise caution and not to venture to low-lying areas or sea. [9] 2 days of heavy rainfall, accumulating to 260 mm (10 in), caused floods in Salalah. In the Western Pacific, Etau and Vamco developed, Vamco later becoming a Category 4 typhoon and both further contributing to the devastating flooding in Vietnam and in the Philippines.

In October, Typhoon Chan-hom was the longest-lived storm of the season, Typhoon Saudel was another contributing storm to the Vietnam flood event, Tropical Storm Linfa became the deadliest storm of the season and year, and Typhoon Molave caused catastrophic damage to the Philippines. The season featured a total of 31 (sub)tropical cyclones, all but one of which became a named storm . The season as a whole, however, was below average. The North Atlantic mainly contributed to most development in the month and continued its record breaking season with the development of Hurricanes Nana, Paulette, Sally, and Teddy, and (Sub)Tropical Storms Omar, Rene, Vicky, Wilfred, Alpha, and Beta. On November 14 another tropical disturbance formed off the coast of Madagascar, however on November 16 the system failed to organise due to unfavorable vertical wind shear according to JTWC. It dissipated shortly afterwards. This marked the second year in a row featuring a super cyclonic storm, the previous year seeing Kyarr in the Arabian Sea. [28], Monsoon withdrawal was delayed in Maharashtra by a week due to ARB 03. [4] By 09:00 UTC on May 17, Amphan had intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm. 57%. The month of January was moderately active in terms of named storms and systems formed, but minimally active in terms of intensity in the Southern Hemisphere, however, no tropical cyclones developed within the Northern Hemisphere. It weakened into a well marked low pressure on the early hours of November 27. "The system — if it develops — will be named Cyclone Esther." In the Southern Hemisphere, Alicia, Tropical Depression 02 formed marking the beginning of the 2020–21 South–West Indian Ocean cyclone season. After Nisarga dissipated, there was no activity between June 4 and October 11 - one of the longest gaps in inactivity on record. Uesi also impacted the east coast of Australia and New Caledonia, killing one person. Better Than Northerlies – Cyclone Season Arrives At Noosa & Kirra Two of the east coast’s best waves have been producing the goods the last 48hrs with the boiling pot and Kirra dishing out pits for the likes of Nick Vasicek, Chris Zaffis, Brent Dorrington, Dextar Muskins, Dion Atkinson, Kai Hing, Harrison Roach and more. It gave nearly 400 mm of extremely heavy rain at Kavaratti, Lakshadweep. No warnings were issued by IMD as no landfall occurred in the Arabian Peninsula. This was mainly due to the developing La Niña. A total of 10 of the 22 storms became typhoons, a moderately lower than normal proportion.

The South Pacific tropical cyclone season officially began on Nov. 1, 2020 and will run through April 30, 2021. Table 1: 2020 pre-season activity forecast. [35] On 21 November, two scatterometer passes revealed a single, well-defined low with gale-force winds underneath an area of flaring convection. According to the JTWC, it explosively intensified from a Category 1-equivalent cyclone to a Category 4-equivalent cyclone in just 6 hours. Later in the month, activity increased in the South Pacific with Vicky and Wasi forming, bringing heavy rain to the Samoan Islands. An average Pacific hurricane season features 15 tropical storms, 9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes, and features an Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) count of 132. 5 The wind speeds for this tropical cyclone/basin are based on the Saffir Simpson Scale which uses 1-minute sustained winds. The 2019–20 season was slightly above average with eight tropical cyclones and four severe tropical cyclones forming during the season. It gradually intensified into a Severe Cyclonic Storm, reaching its peak intensity. After that, on December 6 another low formed off the coast of Java, which also intensified into a tropical storm status according to JTWC. It made landfall on Sri Lanka as a weak cyclonic storm before it degenerated to an area of low pressure. The system then became more well-marked on October 21 over West Central Bay of Bengal. The Eastern Pacific was very quiet, only featuring Norbert while the Western Pacific was active featuring numerous tropical systems which also led to severe floods in Vietnam, including Saudel, Molave, and Goni. Storms Josephine, Kyle, Laura, and Marco became the earliest 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th named storms on record in the Atlantic and forming on August 13, 14, 21, and 22, respectively. Due to the wind shear, it weakened to a cyclonic storm, shortly before making landfall between Karaikal and Mamallapuram around Puducherry, Wednesday evening. This is only the fourth time ever that the typhoon season wasn't the most active season; three times (2005, 2010 and 2020) it was the Atlantic hurricane season, the fourth (and only time the most active season wasn't in the Northern Hemisphere) being the 1973 Australian cyclone season. On June 2, around noon, the prevailing deep depression intensified into a cyclonic storm thereby receiving the name Nisarga. On January 24, a depression formed and dissipated the next day without been named. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no official bounds, but cyclones tend to form between April and November, with peaks in late April to May and October to November. However, any storms that form between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021, will count towards the season total. Following after Higos, a series of typhoons named Bavi, Maysak, and Haishen formed, all impacting South Korea and Haishen becoming the strongest of the month as a near-Category 5 equivalent typhoon. [58], After weakening over Sri Lanka, Burevi exited into the Gulf of Mannar, early on December 3. It hit Christmas Island and dissipated quickly after making landfall in Pilbara Region of Western Australia. Krovanh was responsible for at least $2.28 million USD in damage and 8 dead in the Philippines. The first tropical cyclone of the season could be forming in Australian waters but experts say it could come and go without hitting land. Let’s hope that’s a sign of things to come. Another depression formed in the West Pacific in the middle of the month and eventually strengthened into Tropical Storm Krovanh over the South China Sea. Department of Fire and Emergency Services commissioner Darren Klemm (left), with Emergency Services Minister Fran Logan and WA … [11] Residents in central Salalah experienced disruptions to power and water services. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no official bounds, but cyclones tend to form between April and November, with peaks in late April to May and October to November. Damien became the first and strongest storm of the month, impacting the Pilbara Region of Western Australia as a Category 2 tropical cyclone on the Saffir-Simpson scale. The season produced thirty-one tropical cyclones, of which thirty developed into named storms; thirteen became hurricanes, and six attained major hurricane status. [20], Due to BOB 02, Yanam (Puducherry), Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Kerala, Maharashtra, and coastal Karnataka experienced heavy rain on October 12 and 13, with Hyderabad experiencing 32 cm of record-breaking torrential rain, creating flash floods in the city by October 13. We know that cyclones can develop at any time throughout the tropical cyclone season, which runs from November to April," he said. A depression formed overland near Salalah, Oman on May 29. In July, five individual storms (most notably Hurricane Isaias, which spawned a damaging tornado outbreak in the United States) formed and tied the record with 2005 as the most active July on record. It was designated 06F by the Fiji Meteorological Service. [10] When Cyclone Amphan was approaching India in May, shelter capacity in West Bengal was reduced from 500,000 people to 200,000 people due to social distancing restrictions. The system crossed West Bengal's North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas and moved over the adjoining Bangladeshi coast on the noon of October 23 with the maximum wind speed of 45 km/h (30 mph). In the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, COVID-19, travel and social distancing restrictions associated with the pandemic were lifted for those seeking safe houses and evacuation shelters during Cyclone Harold. There is an equal probability of a decaying ex-tropical cyclone tracking to the east or west of the North Island based on historic track data (Figure 3). It was later joined by Fay on July 9, which became the earliest-forming sixth named storm in the basin and making an unusual landfall in New Jersey, surpassing the previous July 21 record set by Franklin (2005). The basin remained quiet until, on November 30, a tropical low crossed over from the Australian region. Cristobal formed from the remnants of Amanda in May and affected Mexico and the United States, becoming the earliest third named storm in the North Atlantic Ocean on record. 3 Only systems that formed either before or on December 31, 2020 are counted in the seasonal totals.4 The wind speeds for this tropical cyclone/basin are based on the IMD Scale which uses 3-minute sustained winds. An average Atlantic hurricane season features 12 tropical storms, 6 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes, and features an Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) count of 106. [34] Organization thereafter was stymied as it became embedded within a monsoon trough. The names were selected by members of the ESCAP/WMO panel on Tropical Cyclones between 2000 and May 2004, before the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center in New Delhi started to assign names in September 2004. Throughout 2020, 137 tropical cyclones have formed in bodies of water known as tropical cyclone basins. Yasa is currently intensifying and is now a Category 5 according to Australian scale. The season began on May 16 with the designation of Depression BOB 01 in the Bay of Bengal, w… They believed that there was a 60% chance that the environment would remain in neutral conditions related to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO); this was based on the expectation that the above normal water temperatures would return to normal. At the beginning of the month, the active Tropical Low 01U later became Severe Tropical Storm Bongoyo although the precursor of the storm formed in November and is thus is counted as part of that month. [43] The IMD assessed Gati to have reached its peak intensity as a Very Severe Cyclonic Storm around 12:00 UTC, with three-minute sustained winds of 140 km/h (85 mph) and a minimum pressure of 978 mbar (hPa; 28.88 inHg). Fishermen were advised not to go out to sea due to very rough sea conditions. The season concluded on November 19 with the dissipation of Tropical Storm Polo, which briefly existed for around 2 days prior. In the Australian region, two tropical lows formed in and both impacted the Pilbara Region of Western Australia, one reaching near Category 1 tropical cyclone strength according to Australian scale. Within this basin, a tropical cyclone is assigned a name when it is judged to have reached cyclonic storm intensity with winds of 65 km/h (40 mph). During October, eighteen tropical cyclones formed and the month became tied for the second-most active month of the year, with thirteen of the cyclones being named. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northern Indian Ocean. Iota was also the strongest storm in terms of wind speed, peaking with a strength of 160 mph or as a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir–Simpson scale. At the time, the system was at peak intensity with 3-minute sustained winds of 110 km/h (70 mph) and a central pressure of 984 hPa (29.06 inHg). Diane and Esami later formed, with Diane being the costliest and deadliest storm. The month started off with the Atlantic's third Greek-named storm, Gamma, and continued with consistent record-breaking Atlantic activity including 4 additional hurricanes; Delta, Epsilon, Zeta and Eta. [37] Similarly, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) initiated advisories on the system as Tropical Cyclone 03A. As a result, the ENSO Blog issued La Niña watch, stating a 50-55% chance of a strong La Niña. Nivar was in late November and affected East India. [43], Once onshore, land friction-based shear caused convection to quickly become displaced from the storm's center. The strongest storm in the basin this year was Hurricane Marie, which reached low-end Category 4 strength on the Saffir–Simpson scale and it did not impact land. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no real bounds, but cyclones usually form between April and November, with the highest amount of storms in May and October. [16][17], After 3 months of inactivity, on October 11, a depression developed over the west-central Bay of Bengal, though the system was originally observed near the Spratly Islands over the South China Sea on October 6. The season was slightly below average with most of the tropical cyclones affecting the Korean Peninsula and the Philippines. After it's break, Cyclone Gati formed, leaving 8 confirmed, 30 missing as of today, on Somalia and Yemen, where the cyclone took place. No named storms entered the basin from the Central Pacific, east of the International Date Line. There are no tropical cyclones expected in the coming week, says Tonga Met's first 5 days outlook for the season issued today It was also the fourth most intense South Pacific tropical cyclone after Winston, Zoe, Pam, while Zazu dissipated into an extratropical cyclone. Afterwards, a record-breaking ten storms developed in the month of September. In mid March, Gretel entered the basin. Along with the system another low formed off the coast of Kimberley Region. Other notable warning centres include the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the United States's Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), and the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center. It made a landfall between Puducherry and Chennai close to Mahabalipuram in the midnight of November 25. The season officially runs from November 1, 2020 to April 30, 2021, however a tropical cyclone could form at any time between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 and would count towards the season total. There are two main seas in the North Indian Ocean – the Arabian Sea to the west of the Indian subcontinent, abbreviated ARB by the India Meteorological Department (IMD); and the Bay of Bengal to the east, abbreviated BOB by the IMD. In 2020 in the North Atlantic basin, all of the statistics fell well above listed, featuring a record-breaking 30 tropical storms, 13 hurricanes, and 6 major hurricanes, with an ACE total of 178. It strengthened into severe tropical cyclone Uesi and affected New Caledonia and New Zealand. The season began on May 16 with the designation of Depression BOB 01 in the Bay of Bengal, which later became Cyclone Amphan, the strongest storm in the Bay of Bengal recorded since the 1999 Odisha cyclone and breaking the record of Cyclone Nargis of 2008 as the costliest storm ever recorded in the basin. On November 23, a depression formed in the Bay of Bengal, and it strengthened into Very Severe Cyclonic Storm Nivar, two days later. On January 9, a group of climate scientists writing for ENSO Blog published their forecast for atmospheric conditions. Yasa caused catastrophic damge and four deaths in Fiji. TROPICAL CYCLONE POTENTIAL BULLETIN ISSUED BY METEOROLOGICAL SERVICE OF NEW ZEALAND AT 2240 UTC 15-Dec-2020 CURRENT STATUS OF CYCLONE ACTIVITY Tropical Cyclone YASA (category 5) was located near 14.7S 173.5E, The season has produced three depressions, three storms, two cyclone and one intense cyclone so far. As 2020 began, sea surface temperatures were above normal in the eastern Pacific Ocean near the equator, which had the potential to develop into El Niño conditions. The average typhoon season lasts year-round, with the majority of the storms forming between May and October. Eta rapidly intensified to a high-end Category 4 Hurricane, becoming the second strongest of the season and the third strongest hurricane in November ever recorded. The IMD issued cyclone warnings early on November 24 on Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and the country of Sri Lanka as the cyclonic storm accelerates and intensifies. On November 28, a low pressure area formed off the coast of Aceh. In February, Moderate Tropical Storm Francisco formed, and was deemed very weak. Activity in the Western Pacific increased significantly with the formation of Jangmi, Mekkhala, a tropical depression that didn't affect land, and Higos in the South China Sea. It have become extratropical on November 20. 2019–20 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season summary map, 2020–21 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season summary map, 2019–20 Australian region cyclone season summary map, 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season summary map, 2019–20 South Pacific Ocean cyclone season summary map, 2020–21 South Pacific Ocean cyclone season summary map, Global atmospheric and hydrological conditions. 6, 2020 outbreak resulted in the Australian region crossed the 160th meridian east and emerged in the Bay Bengal...
