TROPICAL LOW HIGHLY LIKELY NEXT WEEK
The NE tropics continue to fire with a Tropical LOW likely to develop around the Cape York Peninsula or Gulf Of Carpentaria region next week.
Computer models indicate that a gravity wave tracking west across the Coral Sea will enhance atmospheric instability with an elongated trough system across the Gulf Of Carpentaria linking to the remnants of a Western Queensland LOW currently flooding the Western Queensland region. In addition to this, the monsoonal NW winds are set to increase later next week in the area. All of these ingredients combined will likely spawn a LOW-pressure system near the Cape York Peninsula or in the Gulf Of Carpentaria. That system is expected to move south or more likely south-west across the Gulf Of Carpentaria next week while slowly deepening. It is expected to lie near the South west coast of the Gulf as a deep Tropical LOW or maybe even Tropical Cyclone by the end of next week/next weekend
We are expecting a second LOW to form in the 1-2 week time frame likely in the Coral Sea. Become a subscriber for more early details about why/where and when
