    Oz’s magnificent BoM has recently informed us that we have experienced our first cyclone for this season – Cyclone Paddy
    It was designated as an Australian cyclone when it was 2,800 kms NW of OZ.
    Pressure was 997 and wind speed was 53kph.
    Ove the next 4 days it “””””peaked””””” at 993 and 60 kph!!!!!!!!
    WHAT A BLOODY JOKE.
    Anything published by the Oz BoM should be regarded as pure and utter rubbish – along with their management.
