Rarity: Cyclone Fani Originated in Southern Hemisphere & Crossed EQUATOR


Rare Cyclone Fani Originated in Southern Hemisphere and Crossed the EQUATOR: Part 1 of 2 // May 3, 2019

Rare Cyclone Fani hit NE India today as a strong Category 4 storm, just a 2 mph under Category 5. It is very rare for a April cyclones to make landfall in India as most curve east. I was curious as to where and when the first noticeable low pressure center formed for Fani; I carefully examined surface winds and Mean Sea Level Pressure on Earth Nullschool and found that:

  • The first low pressure disturbance was discernible April 23rd 08:00 Local time in the Southern Hemisphere (2 degrees S latitude).
  • It crossed the Equator, the core changing from circular to elongated multiple times, and amplified with SSTs of 29-31 C.
