The forecast path shown above is the Bureau's best estimate of the cyclone's future movement and intensity. There is always some uncertainty associated with tropical cyclone forecasting and the grey zone indicates the range of likely tracks of the cyclone centre.
Due to the uncertainty in the future movement, the indicated winds will almost certainly extend to regions outside the rings on this map. The extent of the warning and watch zones reflects this.
This product is designed for land-based communities; mariners should read the coastal waters and high seas warnings.
Ex-TROPICAL CYCLONE GILLIAN has moved over land. It is expected to turn towards the southwest and may redevelop into a tropical cyclone early Wednesday morning as it moves over Gulf of Carpentaria waters away from Cape York Peninsula. In the longer term, the system will continue towards the west southwest across the Gulf of Carpentaria and may intensify further.
People from Burketown to the QLD/NT border, including Mornington Island and Sweers Island should consider what action they will need to take if the cyclone threat increases.
