For these reasons, at about 12:00 UTC on 12 December, Owen reformed as a Category 1 tropical cyclone. Severe tropical cyclone Yasa reached category 5 strength to the west of Fiji on the 16th, and became the strongest cyclone of 2020 across the basins., as well as the earliest category 5 system in the South Pacific Region. Damaging winds with gusts to … I'm sorry. Ref 45 doesn't indicate warnings being lifted. You should indeed mention that this was Australia's highest ever daily December rainfall. Changed to "struggling to maintain convection.". - the lead should have one paragraph about the storm and its history, then another paragraph with the impacts, " It was dubbed the "zombie cyclone" by who? Chicago Tribune obituaries and Death Notices for Chicago Illinois area . Ref 44 is the same as Ref 43 and is from before landfall so doesn't support anything written about during/after landfall. - this is unsourced, What is the reference for "Cyclone Owen caused significant damage in Papua New Guinea.". Is this true?  By 12 December, Owen was slowly moving west over the Gulf of Carpentaria. The forecast path shown above is the Bureau’s best estimate of the cyclone’s future movement and intensity. Ref 37 (NASA) indicates that the rain rate of 97 mm/hr occurred on 12 December and not 17 December; the mention is actually not at the linked article but down. Tropical Cyclone Owen will intensify into a category 3 storm by Thursday morning, forecasters at the Bureau of Meteorology predict. It had been moving west for a week. I can't find any more sources, I've changed my mind about my above comment. The latest tracking map forecasts the cyclone intensifying to a Category 2 later today. "04U continued to move westward through the Gulf of Carpentaria, and convection increased through early 11 December. First things first, the MH should just be one section in its entirety. It was once miles, but in the previous review, Hurricanehink told me to change it to kilometres because Australia uses metric! In the last 24 hours it turned back towards … - This isn't true as the Papua New Guinea National Weather Service states in their country report to the World Meteorological Organisation that Owen caused significant impacts across PNG southern coastline with wind gusts and flooding. Its 10-minute mean winds peaked at 250 km/h. "Owen's landfalls brought effects hundreds of miles inland." "and warnings in Northern Territory were lifted" - this is the first time you mentioned warnings. First, the first sentence is rather stub-like and should be merged. Ditto for Northern Territory. Ref 36 (The Morning Bulletin) is a forecast and not an indication that heavy rainfall did occur; forecasts can and often fail to materialize. This Severe Weather Update provides information on tropical cyclone Owen in the Coral Sea, 1010 km east of Cairns in Queensland.  On December 9, Cyclone Owen degenerated into a low-pressure area - The system degenerated into a tropical low end off, it didn't become an extratropical cyclone while a tropical low and area of low pressure is basically the same thing. Could you mention "thunderstorms" when you mention convection for the first time? More significant of a problem is the sourcing, for which I have to fail the GAN. It still seems quite sparse despite what has been added in during the past review. It won't be a good article without that. When Cyclone Amphan was a Category 5 hurricane while tracking through the Bay of Bengal, NASA calculated the massive rainfall it generated. - could you add the location for where that happened? I'm sorry. Speaking of, ref 35 doesn't mention the damage total. Hurricane Owen was the most intense tropical cyclone ever recorded worldwide, and was the most intense hurricane to make landfall in the United States in the modern era. The possibility of the area to strengthen into a tropical cyclone was marked as "low".  At this stage the disturbance had a very disorganised low level circulation, while atmospheric convection was displaced to the southwest of the circulation. Ref 41 doesn't mention anything about landslides actually occurring (just the potential). --> The moderately favourable conditions allowed thunderstorm activity and convection to increase in intensity and organisation, leading to the formation of Owen by 12:00 UTC on 2 December. Could you be more broad with your description, like one or two sentences here? , Cyclone Owen made several landfalls in Queensland throughout its duration.  Soon after, Owen gained a burst of convection, but started to appear asymmetrical. "However, in the east, convection remained, so Owen moved slightly to the east." The MH is just a mess and doesnt tell the story of Owen properly: Firstly this section needs to be removed as it is just fluff: In late November 2018, an area of low pressure persisted in the Coral Sea. This can be cited back to the BoM's TC Database and is the way I opened Harold's MH. On December 2, a warning was issued for the Solomon Islands. OUTLOOK UNTIL 1200 UTC TUE 29-DEC-2020 Cyclone Owen is moving slowly over waters off the Northern Territory with winds of up to 200km/h (124mph), meteorologists said. - this is useless without a more specific windspeed. - that's awkward and not really true. TROPICAL CYCLONE POTENTIAL BULLETIN ISSUED BY METEOROLOGICAL SERVICE OF NEW ZEALAND AT 2204 UTC 24-Dec-2020 CURRENT STATUS OF CYCLONE ACTIVITY There are presently no tropical cyclones in the Coral Sea or South Pacific areas.

Cyclone Owen will “wreak havoc” across Queensland, with remote communities braced for 280km/h winds and much of the state on flood alert, the premier has …  At around 20:30 UTC on 14 December, the BoM reported that Owen had made landfall as a Category 3 severe tropical cyclone with a pressure of 960 hPA (mbar), on an uninhabited stretch of coast to the northwest of Port McArthur. "Conditions in the Gulf of Carpentaria were more favourable than in the Coral Sea, which caused 04U to become more well-structured and strengthen slightly" - why did you call it 04U, when you've established that it was Owen? Your average reader might not know what convection is, "The moderately favourable conditions caused Tropical Low 04U to further develop and gain some convection. The area of low pressure that would eventually become Severe Tropical Cyclone Owen was first noted by the United States Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) during 28 November while it was located in the Solomon Sea, about 645 km (400 mi) to the north of Honiara in the Solomon Islands.
