Default Tropical Cyclone Dylan - Northern Queensland

Batten down the hatches - track as yet uncertain but there is definitely a Low building in the Coral Sea. Models as yet are unsure whether it will cross the coast (and if so, where) or will track down the coast thus affecting much of the Queensland coast

Existing Cyclones in the Eastern Region:

Nil.

Potential Cyclones:

The monsoon trough extends from Papua New Guinea to the Solomon Islands, with an area of low pressure located southwest of the Solomon Islands. The monsoon is expected to strengthen early next week. It is likely that with the
intensification of the monsoon trough, the low will develop further, however
the uncertainty with its future movement is high.

Likelihood of a tropical cyclone in the Eastern Region on:
Monday Low
Tuesday Moderate
Wednesday High

The track is still uncertain but I would say yes, to some extent it will.

At present there is a split between the models; it MAY PROBABLY reach cyclone intensity it may cross the coast, probably near Townsville, bringing heavy rain and destructive winds, and a possible storm surge. That would impact Mackay to some extent.
Other models favour it staying just offshore and working its way down the coast - again this would impact on Mackay.

Best advice at present ( with unofficicial Emergency Services backing) - prepare for very heavy rain and destructive winds, review your cyclone kit and cyclone evac plans, watch and listen to ABC Radio, and other local stations. Any official notice of evacuations will be well disseimnated by the authorities by use of mobiles, radio, tv etc.
I will also continue to post updates on here, but I will be operational at work most of this week so may not be able to post on here until a few hours after warnings are issued.

I see you went through tC Anthony, and thus thru Yasi, so you know what you're about........

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 6
Issued at 10:35 am EST on Wednesday 29 January 2014

A Cyclone WARNING remains current for coastal and island communities from Port Douglas to Mackay

A Cyclone WATCH remains current for coastal and island communities from Mackay to St Lawrence, extending inland through the eastern interior north of Clermont.

At 10:00 am EST a Tropical Low was estimated to be 570 kilometres east northeast of Cairns and 590 kilometres northeast of Townsville and moving south southwest at 8 kilometres per hour towards the coast.

The tropical low is expected to move in a general west southwestwards direction over the next couple of days and may develop further as it approaches the Queensland east coast.

A strong ridge of high pressure extends through the Coral Sea to the south of the tropical low. The two systems are currently combining to generate GALES at times along much of the east coast between Port Douglas and Mackay. Winds are expected to increase further with DAMAGING WIND GUSTS to 120km/hr developing about the coast from late this afternoon or evening and extending inland during Thursday and Friday.

Heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop about coastal and adjacent inland areas of the North Tropical Coast and Tablelands, Herbert and Lower Burdekin and the Central Coast and Whitsundays districts from late this afternoon or evening and should continue into Friday.

Coastal residents between Port Douglas and Hamilton Island are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the developing tropical low approaches the coast, particularly on the high tide on Thursday and Friday. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas close to the shoreline. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

As the developing tropical low approaches the coast, a storm tide is expected between Hamilton Island and St Lawrence, particularly on the high tide on Thursday and Friday. Large waves may produce minor flooding along the foreshore. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to help their neighbours.

A separate Severe Weather Warning is current for remaining coastal and island communities from Cooktown to Port Douglas and from St Lawrence to Gladstone.

Media: The Standard Emergency Warning Signal should NOT be used with this warning.



TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST



TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 7

Issued at 1:27 pm EST on Wednesday 29 January 2014



A Cyclone WARNING remains current for coastal and island communities from Port Douglas to Mackay



A Cyclone WATCH remains current for coastal and island communities from Mackay to St Lawrence, extending inland through the eastern interior north of Clermont.



At 1:00 pm EST a Tropical Low was estimated to be 545 kilometres east of Cairns and 545 kilometres northeast of Townsville and moving south southwest at 11 kilometres per hour towards the coast.



The tropical low is expected to move in a general southwestwards direction over the next couple of days and may develop further as it approaches the Queensland east coast.



A strong ridge of high pressure extends through the Coral Sea to the south of the tropical low. The two systems are currently combining to generate GALES at times along much of the east coast between Port Douglas and Mackay. Winds are expected to increase further with DAMAGING WIND GUSTS to 120km/hr developing about the coast from this evening and extending inland during Thursday and Friday.



Heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop about coastal and adjacent inland areas of the North Tropical Coast and Tablelands, Herbert and Lower Burdekin and the Central Coast and Whitsundays districts from tonight and should continue into Thursday.



Coastal residents between Port Douglas and Hamilton Island are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the developing tropical low approaches the coast, particularly on the high tide on Thursday and Friday. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas close to the shoreline. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.



As the developing tropical low approaches the coast, a storm tide is expected between Hamilton Island and St Lawrence, particularly on the high tide on Thursday and Friday. Large waves may produce minor flooding along the foreshore. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to help their neighbours.



A separate Severe Weather Warning is current for remaining coastal and island communities from Cooktown to Port Douglas and from St Lawrence to Gladstone.



People between Port Douglas and Mackay should take precautions and listen to the next advice at 5pm.

- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)

- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) on
