CANCELLATION SEVERE WEATHER WARNING

Issued at 2:03 pm Tuesday, 29 December 2015.

Synoptic Situation:
A southeasterly wind surge is moving northwards along the east tropical coast.
The wind surge is expected to combine with an unstable and extremely moist air
mass to produce areas of moderate rain and thunderstorms.

Widespread heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is now no longer
expected to develop about the northeast tropical coast and nearby inland. Some
localised heavy falls are still possible with thunderstorms however, and Severe
Thunderstorm Warnings will be issued as necessary.

Some locally heavy falls are likely with thunderstorms over remaining northern
districts during the next few days - Severe Thunderstorm Warnings will be issued
as necessary.




Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.


Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's
website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire
and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
