Default Deepening low off Queensland Coast

Take care on the beaches guys, the surf is rising, large waves expected end of the week, and there is a deepening low which may make things nastier still. More when I have it.....

Strong Wind/Gale Warning
Townsville to Double Island Point including Hervey Bay
SE winds at 25/30 knots between Townsville to Burnett Heads for today. For Thursday, SE winds 25/30 knots extending from Bowen to Double Island Point in the morning with 30/35 knot winds developing between St Lawrence to Sandy Cape during the evening. Seas to 2.5 to 3 metres in open waters rising to 3.5 metres within the Gale zone. A 2 metre SE swell rising to 3 metres later tomorrow.

I'm on duty

Keep your eye on the Bureau of Met site, everyone all the way down the coast. Excerpt from the link above:

From late Thursday onwards the upper trough will amplify and induce a low at the surface off the central coast of Qld. This low will then move slowly southwards during the weekend while deepening and could potentially develop into a cyclone.
Until it deepens no-one can now what it will do/where it will go......watch this space, but watch the BOM as well in case I'm too busy........

Was really messy down here today. Doing VMR and watching idiots trying to take their boats out was not funny. Thankfully all but one got so far, turned round and came back in. The one (hadn't logged in) who didn't wallowed about for half an hour and then beached it next to the groyne. Don't know or care when or if he got back inside the bar. He was a twit.

Keep your eyes on the BOM site, it can only get worse towards the weekend and into next week - note the updated thread title

Yeah, it confused me subscribed threads came up and I thought "oh didn't reply to that, why's that come up?" Don't take much though

It always was the ones who didnt log on that caused the most grief. At this time of year it is always the ones with the shiney new Xmas present who have to go out no matter what the conditions.

The day usually ends with a hefty serving of hot tongue and cold shoulder with the OH swearing never to go out again...

Surfs up. Time for that good groundswell from the north.

Not a cyclone (yet) but a deepening low off the Queensland coast......I'm on call for work so I get the advance warning that there is something not very nice brewing.

I'm no expert but this means:

2) Bugger all will hit the dams.
