Tropical Cyclone Penny is about to return to the Queensland coast because it continues to weaken from a class 1, forecasters predict.
The tropical cyclone has produced winds close to the centre of 75 kilometres per hour with wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour.
A Bureau of Meteorology warning on Saturday stated the climate bureau tracked the cyclone over the Coral Sea, about 600 kilometres east of Willis Island and 1060 kilometres east of Cairns by 11am.
“Tropical Cyclone Penny is situated nicely to the east of the Queensland coast and isn’t anticipated to influence the coast within the subsequent three days,” the warning stated.
“Penny is predicted to stay gradual shifting immediately, after which will probably flip in the direction of the coast on Sunday.”
The warning stated the system would proceed to weaken because it approached the coast throughout the week.
“Penny is unlikely to be an intense system when it reaches the coast however there stays a danger that it’s going to produce gales and heavy rainfall in coastal areas throughout subsequent week,” it stated.
In the meantime, the flood scenario within the Cape York Peninsula is predicted to enhance within the coming days after latest rainfall.
“Any additional rainfall is predicted to be localised and never worsen the present flooding scenario,” a BOM spokesman stated.
Elevated river ranges had been anticipated to proceed within the Jardine River, Ducie, Jackson and Skardon Rivers, Wenlock River, Embley and Mission Rivers, Jacky Jacky Creek, Olive and Pascoe Rivers, Lockhart River.
Nevertheless, catchments stay comparatively moist following latest rainfall.
