The nation's capital has rewritten the record books this morning, producing a May-like morning in February.
Tropical Cyclone Alfred has weakened to a tropical low as it nears landfall on the Gulf of Carpentaria's southern coast, but the Bureau of Meteorology warned the weather system remained powerful.
Some homes in the community of Borroloola on the Gulf of Carpentaria were evacuated with 74 residents sheltering elsewhere, as they waited for Cyclone Alfred to make landfall about sunrise on Tuesday.
