Queensland Tropical Cyclone Track Map
Tropical Cyclone Tatiana
Tropical Cyclone Tatiana has restrengthened into a category 2 system.
It is currently located about 890 kilometres east northeast of Fraser Island, moving south southeast at 22 kilometres per hour.
It is expected that this system will weaken into a category 1 system today before transitioning into a deep subtropical low pressure system later today or overnight into Sunday.
The system is not expected to directly impact the Queensland coast, but it will generate powerful surf along the coast from Sunday and into Monday in areas south of Sandy Cape, including the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.
Temperatures will cool down for much of the week for South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.
The monsoon trough has made a glancing blow of Queensland's Cape York Peninsula and the Top End.
Rain in parts of western Queensland in the past week has raised hope that the drought may finally be over, but the long, dry years have already devastated pastures and wiped out incomes for many farming families.
