Newly formed Cyclone Edna not expected to threaten Queensland, weaken in the Coral SeaSaturday February 1, 2014 - 17:50 EDT
The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) says a newly formed cyclone in the Coral Sea is unlikely to threaten the Queensland coast.
The weather bureau says Cyclone Edna is about 400 kilometres east northeast of Mackay and is moving slowly in a south-easterly direction.
BoM says the category-one system is expected to remain offshore and weaken tomorrow morning.
Edna comes after ex-tropical cyclone Dylan crossed the north Queensland coast early on Friday morning, bringing heavy rain but not causing substantial damage.
