Note: This article is completely fake as evidenced by the article name. This is what could have happened if the Australian Bureau of Meteorology decided not to combine all three lists at the start of the 2008–2009 Australian region cyclone season. Now back to the article

The Fake 2008–2009 Australian region cyclone season was an event in the ongoing cycle of tropical cyclone formation. It began on November 1, 2008 and ended on April 30, 2009. The regional tropical cyclone operational plan also defines a tropical cyclone year separately from a tropical cyclone season, which runs from July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2009.

Storm names

Tropical cyclones in this area were monitored by five Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres (TCWCs): the Australian Bureau of Meteorology in Perth, Darwin, and Brisbane; TCWC Jakarta in Indonesia; and TCWC Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea. The Joint Typhoon Warning Centre also issues unofficial warnings for the region, designating tropical depressions with the "S" suffix when they form west of 135°E, and the "P" suffix when they form east of 135°E.

Indonesia

Tropical cyclones that developed between the Equator and 10°S and between 90°E and 125°E were assigned names by the Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Southeast Indian Ocean

Tropical cyclones that developed east of 90°E, south of 10°S, and west of 125°E were assigned names by the Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Perth.

Arafura Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria

Tropical cyclones that developed south of the Equator between 125°E and 141°E were assigned names by the Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Darwin.

Coral Sea

Tropical cyclones that developed south of 10°S between 141°E and 160°E were assigned names by the Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Brisbane.

Solomon Sea and Gulf of Papua

Tropical cyclones that develop north of 10°S between 141°E and 160°E were assigned names by the Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.Tropical cyclone formation in this area is rare, and prior to this season, only three cyclones were named in this region since 1993.

Retirement

At the 12th meeting of the RA V Tropical Cyclone Committee in Niue in July 2008, it was decided that the name Guba was retired from the TCWC Port Moresbys Naming lists this season as TCWC Port Moresby uses names only once and then they are retired. The name Malia was promoted from the standby list to replace the name Guba. The name Auram was added to the standby list in place of Malia.
