The southern region of Indonesia is one of the places where tropical cyclones grow in the southern hemisphere. During 1983-2017 there were 51 tropical cyclones occurring in the region. This study aims to understand the characteristic of tropical cyclones in southern Indonesia and their variations, both spatially and temporally, and their effect on extreme rain events in Indonesia. Historical data analysis results show that tropical cyclones in southern Indonesia generally occur in November-April with a lifetime of 7-8 days. The result of data analysis shows that the central pressure value of tropical cyclone in latitude 0°-10°S is more than 960 hPa. The value tends to be higher than the central value pressure of tropical cyclone in latitude 10°S-20°S, which has the range of values about 920-960 hPa. This study also explains that there are 9 tropical cyclones in 35 years back that grow or move closer to the Indonesian archipelago in latitude 0°-10°S. The event of tropical cyclone Dahlia at the end of 2017 also affect the enormously increase of rainfall in Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta region with the increase of rain reaches 750% from the historical average.
