Queensland may see its first tropical cyclone in two years in coming days, although the situation is still hard to call.
A tropical low off north Queensland has a high chance of developing into a cyclone and making landfall by early next week, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says.
It runs one of the most-viewed websites in Australia and broadcasts its weather forecasts and warnings around the country each day.
