  1. The Bureau of meteorology publishes an outlook for cyclone activity for Australia every season

    The OUTLOOK link and archives is here
    http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/ahead/tc.shtml

    EXTRACT

    The typical Australian tropical cyclone season:

    -has most tropical cyclones between 1 November and 30 April;
    -averages around 11 tropical cyclones;
    -sees an average of four tropical cyclones cross the coast, though coastal impacts -can be felt when tropical cyclones remain well offshore;
    -on average has its first cyclone cross the coast in late December.

    -In the absence of El Niño or La Niña (i.e., neutral years), tropical cyclone numbers around Australia are most often close to average, though individual years can be above or below the long term mean.

  2. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/are-category-6-hurricanes-coming/

    “”Even nowadays, instruments to measure actual wind speed are often destroyed during extreme storms, so estimates have to be extrapolated from satellite images and other data. Actual observations can also be suspect. It took 14 years for the World Meteorological Organization to acknowledge that an anemometer

    in Australia recorded a world record wind speed of 407 kph (253 mph) during Tropical Cyclone Olivia in 1996. “

  3. ‘desieb0y’ from WZ f0rum said”Longest lasting tropical cyclone 31 days August 11 – September 10, 1994 Hurricane/Typhoon John in northeast and northwest Pacific Basin [11]

    Longest distance traveled by tropical cyclone 13,280 km (7,165 mi) August 11 – September 10, 1994 Hurricane/Typhoon John in northeast and northwest Pacific Basin ” but left no reference?
