Cyclones can be predicted four months ahead, thanks to new Australasian model – ABC News

Australian and New Zealand researchers develop a new predictive model that forecasts cyclones up to four months in advance, which could buy the Pacific more time to prepare for deadly weather events.

Cyclones have been notoriously hard to predict over decades, but a new scientific model could prove to be a circuit-breaker, particularly in the cyclone-battered Pacific.
Key points:

  • Cyclone modelling has traditionally been difficult due to complex interactions between the sea and atmosphere
  • A new Australia-New Zealand forecast model now synthesizes these interactions simultaneously
  • This could strengthen the Pacific’s preparedness for its annual cyclone season
