Weather Situation

Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor, currently making landfall over the far northeast coast of Queensland, south of Lockhart River. The system is expected to cross the Peninsula tonight and on Wednesday weakening to a category 1 system, before moves further west into the Gulf of Carpentaria on late Wednesday, where it is likely to reintensify. A surface trough extends from northwest Queensland, through the central interior to the far southeast of the state. The trough will remain slow moving until Thursday, when it will move slowly westwards over southern parts of the state. The trough will combine with moist air to its east to lead to mostly isolated showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will increase above the March average over central and southern parts.
