Willis Is at 1001.5 & 74km/h gusts, interesting to see what happens as it moves over. Someone head out to Willis Is and give him a push West please? grin

Apart from the shear to Tim's south, there in no southern high pressure feeding into it, and it will not have until possible Monday, I doubt if Tim will get past a Cat 2/3.

JTWC and CMISS track forecasts show big westward swing aiming at Whitsundays, maybe landfall on 19 th. I wonder if Tim will still be a TC at this point?

Willis Island is coping it. Too bad it isn't turning straight west. There goes the rain again!

The big fella is CAT 2 already. It would seem he is developing faster than expected!

Surely once the shear affects this system it'll die out pretty quick, such a small system!

As suggested earlier Things. It's not impossible. Depends on the highs in the south west methinks.

BoM really are betting it all on shear but at least now agree on a coastal crossing.
"The system lies in a region of NW shear, which should steadily increase over the
next 36 hours. This is likely to slow further development, and lead to weakening
from Saturday onwards as the system likely turns to the south. Following this
period, weakening of the upper trough and development of low level ridging to
the south should push the remains of the system, most likely below tropical
cyclone strength, westwards towards the Queensland coast."

Note the MOST LIKELY below cyclone strength.
Hmmm... not so sure about that by the look of it.

Same! This mornings 5am forecast map showed it developing to cat 1 by 10pm, but its already cat 2! I think its got a few surprises up its sleeve before Tim is finished.

Guys this track of a TC hitting CQ next week was just sent to me. Can someone else more experienced have a look please. Ive never used this model before so I have no idea of how accurate it is.

It's an interpretation of GFS. Nothing new there. The big system out of the east was progged some time ago and is not Timmy.
As for accuracy... depends on your opinion.

GFS, EC and the BoM are the three best modelling agencies (in my opinion)

Going off the latest district forecast from BOM it seems they would suspect a south of Townsville crossing.
