Queensland Satellite Notes
Thick cloud near northern QLD with deepening low is triggering showers and a few storms around the coast and adjacent inland areas. Patchy cloud in the southeast with onshore winds are bringing light showers. Skies are clearer in the west under a ridge of high pressure.
Tropical Cyclone Debbie is strengthening quickly on its journey to make landfall, likely between Lucinda and Proserpine on Monday or Tuesday.
A cyclone off northern Queensland could intensify to category five by the time it crosses the coast somewhere between Cardwell and Bowen, near Townsville, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned.
A tropical low brewing 600 kilometres north-east of the Queensland coast could make landfall somewhere between Cairns and Townsville early next week as a category four cyclone or higher, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says.
