EL NINO UPDATE: With tropical cyclone season fast approaching, Pacific meteorological agencies are warning of above average activity with up to 13 named tropical cyclones expected between now and April. New Zealand normally experiences one ex-tropical cyclone a year, reaching as close as 550km off shore — but the prospects for other regions of the Pacific are more severe.
Tropical cyclones have a significant impact across the southwest Pacific each year, with Vanuatu and New Caledonia experiencing the most activity of the region, averaging two to three named events a year. With the elevated activity across the entire southwest Pacific region, the combined agencies issued a warning to all those in the affected areas.
It is recommended that all communities remain alert and well prepared for severe events.
At least six Category 3 tropical cyclones are expected, with wind speeds of at least 118km/h.
It is also expected that four systems could reach Category 4, meaning wind speeds of 159km/h.
