Totally personal view after disucssions at work today - yep its possible. Most of the models have TC Anthony turning back towards the coast - he has already turned more to the SE instead of due east - and at present he could well come back and impact the coast somewhere. Its not beyond the realms of possibility for him to go further north to make landfall (Cairns/Cooktown) but the consensus today among us amateur cyclone-watchers was somewhere in the Townsville-Mackay-Rockhampton-Gladstone sector is the most likely.

Hopefully by typing that I will cause him to do a rethink and head off out to sea, but.........to be honest until he turns more there's no way of predicting for certain.

Anyone into serious cyclone watching, there is a fabulous forum on www.weatherzone.com.au ,well worth a browse.

Well you seem to have scared Wilma away nicely as she is now heading for NZ, but there's another system brewing out there, no bets where/what that one will do at present but it looks on the models.

Reckon if it develops it should be called Bixie.

A lot of wind but little gust.
