Brief description

Tropical cyclones are low pressure systems that form over warm tropical waters and have gale force winds. The data depict the past, recent and predicted track and movement of a cyclone over the next 120 hours. Areas of uncertainty indicate possible tracks over the forecast period. The extent and intensity of damaging winds (gale, storm and hurricane-force) are also shown. The data are issued at a similar frequency to the Bureau of cyclone advice, although they may not be available if warnings are hourly.

Notes

To show the past, recent and predicted track of a tropical cyclone system and any associated warning and watch areas.
