The tendency towards higher pressure over southern Australia is well-documented and is related to a poleward movement in the extratropical storm track during austral winter that is predominantly due to greenhouse gas emissions (e.g., Arblaster and Meehl 2006; Delworth and Zeng 2014), although it may, in part, also be related to stratospheric ozone depletion.
Jet streak dynamics play a crucial role in extratropical storm development (e.g., Uccellini 1990) and may have a similar role in TC intensity change.
