OZ CYCLONE CHASERS - TC DEBBIE PUBLIC VIDEO UPDATE - MARCH 25 2017
Tropical Cyclone Debbie has been slowly intensifying through the day and is exhibiting some strong convection beginning to wrap around the core circulation this evening. Debbie is expected to adopt a track towards the Queensland coastline between Cairns and Mackay (with particular focus between Ingham and Bowen) and begin intensifying more rapidly from overnight tonight and will then continue to intensify all the way until landfall. Landfall should take place sometime on Tuesday. A Category 3 - Category 5 strength system is being predicted by a majority of computer models upon landfall. A Destructive storm surge is likely from the system and with higher than normal astronomical tides in operation over the next few days, this could become a deadly combination. Very heavy rainfall leading to flooding is now appearing more likely as the system is expected to be a lot slower moving than forecast a few days ago. Once the system hits the coast it is likely to stall over inland Queensland and dump big falls of rain over widespread inland areas while continuing to provide heavy falls for coastal regions.
