There is a tropical cyclone in the southern Indian ocean! It developed last night- but isn't this extremley rare? It has formed just about in the perth area of responsibilty, but looks like dissapating in the next 24 hours. What is puzzling me though, is I thought waters are far too cool at this time of year for development in the south indian ocean? The cyclone season for this area in November-April. How did this system form?
