Australia weather warning: Cyclone Linda coming in from Coral Sea

Australia weather warning: Cyclone Linda coming in from Coral Sea

Our friends at the Bureau of Meteorology have announced that the latest divine reparation to skirt our flawless shores is Tropical Cyclone Linda, now a fair ways off the coast of Queensland, in the Coral Sea - around 1100 km east of Mackay.

Tropical Cyclone Linda is expected to batter the Queensland coastline on Wednesday bringing unsafe surf.

The low-pressure system in the Coral Sea intensified into a category one cyclone on Tuesday and is tracking towards land about 850km north-east of Brisbane.

"There still will be showers especially around our coastal regions over the next couple of days, but because this system is anticipated to remain offshore, that's why the heavier rain will remain off the coast as well".

'I don't think she'll survive as a cyclone for too much longer, maybe a few more hours before she gets downgraded, ' Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Rick Threlfall told the ABC just before 7am.

Hazardous surf warnings are in place for the Capricornia Coast, Fraser Island Coast, and the Gold and Sunshine coasts.

Unsafe waves of up to four metres are likely for the state's southeast tomorrow.

As always: keep an eye on weather reports (the BoM Queensland Twitter account is super useful for stuff like this), don't venture into risky weather, don't drive into flood waters, and check on people you know who might be isolated and need assistance in the event of unsafe weather. Residents close to beaches are being advised to have sandbags ready.

The weather bureau said water levels are expected to exceed the highest tide of the year along the open beaches during this morning.

The warning comes after the north of Queensland has been devastated by floods which last week was declared a disaster situation.
