TROPICAL LOW TO FORM IN CORAL SEA AND BEGIN MOVING TOWARDS QUEENSLAND
Computer models indicate a Tropical LOW will begin forming in the far North-Eastern Coral Sea over the next 24-48 hours and adopt a westerly track towards Queensland over the next week. About 30% of modelling indicates that this system will deepen sufficiently to become a Tropical Cyclone, while approximately 70% of computer models continue to indicate that this system will likely remain a LOW pressure system as it hits the Queensland coast next week.
Once guidance begins to solidify on a particular solution we will have more updates for you, but for now understand that there is a LOW forming and moving towards the west. Regardless of whether the system hits the coast as a Tropical LOW or a Tropical Cyclone, rainfall will increase near its crossing point and also south of it next week. A majority of computer models surveyed by OCC in the past 24 hours have the system hitting the Queensland coast in one form or another.
In the meantime heavy rain is set to continue along a trough line through Central Queensland with scattered showers and thunderstorms probable across most of the eastern parts of the state.
