Weather Situation
A high pressure system lies to the west of New Zealand while Tropical Cyclone
Oma is to the southwest of New Caledonia, creating an east to southeast
airstream over the island.

The current track map for TC Oma is at
http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDQ65002.shtml and shows TC Oma tracking in a
south-southwest direction towards southeast Queensland. This system is likely to
generate large seas and dangerous surf conditions. At this stage, strong
southeasterly winds are expected to remain about the island over the forecast
period, with skies clearing up from Sunday. However this will be dependent on
the movement and intensity of the cyclone.
