Timeline of Recent events[edit]

I prefer we start maintaining a live timeline for all seasons from 2011. This would mean further development of Indian ocean cyclone articles. --Anirudh EmaniSay something 08:59, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Anirudh. This will also save our time in the end. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 08:22, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
By all means create one in User Space but wait to publish it until we have 3 or 4 systems. Also it wouldnt save that much time since in 2012 we would have to revisit it and may need to rewrite bits due to the IMD and JTWC BT Anyalsis being released.Jason Rees (talk) 14:59, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Change[edit]

A change should be brought to the style of indian ocean articles....all of them should not look alike.. HunterZone (talk) 15:02, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

What are you thinking? - and besides this season we will be implementing the areas affected template instead of the silly landfalls template.Jason Rees (talk) 19:38, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

We should make the NIOCS more like the Atlantic hurricane season article.. They (AHS) are more informative and even details are given when a particular storm is active (instead of writing just still active)..Take the example of 2005 Atlantic hurricane season which in my opinion is the best article related to hurricane season..HunterZone (talk) 13:50, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I agree, make the articles more informative

Improvement[edit]

I was thinking that there are some storms which are neglected by JTWC ;especially the IMD, for example they do not some time up grade the system while the country which is bracing itself for the storm, their Met office some time upgrade or lower the grade of the storm. So we should also put some data about that too.HunterZone (talk) 14:35, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, if the storm has been classified as a depression by the IMD or as a TC by the JTWC, we can add additional info. But as the RSMC in this area is IMD New Delhi, we cannot add info about a low pressure until it is classified as a storm by them. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 17:26, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Problem[edit]

I dont know the reason, but whenever I add a new point in the "Recent Events", the text below goes off. I tried to undo and try again, but the same is happening. Any solutions? Please check my older edits in the page history for errors. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 17:23, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. Was a citation error. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 05:14, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Current Status Infobox[edit]

Why don't we implement the infobox that shows the current status of the tropical storm in the NIO articles? I've seen it in the Pacific and Atlantic articles and they seem good. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 16:29, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Sure, experimenting here and here. Its all messed up! Kindly help --Anirudh Emani (talk) 09:22, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
Looks good....waiting for another storm to work on :) Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 16:29, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Prem reports[edit]

IMD are now issuing preliinary reports.Jason Rees (talk) 01:02, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
They are AWESOME!! --Anirudh Emani (talk) 13:21, 3 October 2011 (UTC)
....lovely...They don't seem to want to upgrade BOB 02 to a Cyclonic Storm. Peak was 35kt 978mb according to their report, the pressure value is just insanely low for those winds. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 13:43, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Dare i say it but wait for the BT and remember 2 things. 1 - they classified it as a TC where as JTWC did not initiate despite them and SAB registering T2.5. 2 - Remember pressures in the Bay of Bengal are always lower than standard :P.Jason Rees (talk) 15:36, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
It should be mentioned, however, that those numbers occurred when the system was already over land more than a day or so. And the JTWC, OTOH, does not care much about systems which are over land. At least that's my subjective impression. --Matthiasb (talk) 09:20, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

WebCite not available[edit]

I couldn't cite my last edit on Deep Depression ARB 02 as the Webcite servers were not working. Has anyone got any other citation websites similar to use instead of WebCite? Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 17:16, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

User:Keith Edkins maintains an archive here of some of the advisories issued by the RSMC's including IMD.Jason Rees (talk) 21:15, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Keila (IMD) is 03A (JTWC)?[edit]

Where did the guys in Honolulu leave 02A? --Matthiasb (talk) 07:11, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

They are right. There is no 02A. There was 01A (ARB 01), 02B (BOB 04) and Keila is 03A. Rishabh Tatiraju (talk) 10:07, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Youre getting mixed up between the JTWC numbering system and the IMD numbering system.Jason Rees (talk) 17:34, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Here is how the JTWC numbers system. If there happens to be another cyclone in the northern Indian ocean the number assigned will be either 04B (Bay of Bengal) or 04A (Arabian Ocean). -- グリフオーザー (talk) 19:56, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Keila Image[edit]

I suggest that we use this image for the info box, as it is higher in resolution and shows the storm at/ near peak intensity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Supportstorm (talkcontribs) Matthiasb (talk) 18:44, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Made the change. --Matthiasb (talk) 18:44, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Land Depression[edit]

The land depression does not belong in this article. It was not part of the season because it was entirely over land and not tropical.

I am afraid the land depression does belong in this article as the RSMC for the region (the IMD), counts it towards their seasonal total on page 24.Jason Rees (talk) 22:03, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
JR is right, per that link. It should stay. Many land depressions are included in previous seasons. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 23:20, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Why do they count it? And I looked and none of the previous seasons on Wikipedia have any land depressions.
