Qld facing tropical cyclone threat

There’s severe bushfires wreaking havoc across most of the state, but Queensland is now facing another weather threat.

The Bureau of Meteorology says there’s a “moderate chance” of a tropical low developing into a possible cyclone in Queensland on Sunday.

“A tropical low is currently located over the Solomon Islands,” the Bureau of Meteorology said.


“The low is forecast to move in a southwesterly direction while developing further over the next three days.

“At this stage, it is expected to remain outside our region of responsibility before entering the Eastern Region during Sunday or Monday.”

It’s understood there’s a 20 to 50 per cent chance of the low forming into a cyclone.
