I've cranked the ceiling fan up to 3, still windier than it is outside. Actually the wind and rain has basically stopped now. Could light some candles outside.

Found this interesting to do with determining the Low Level Circulation Centre.

It's gone absolutely dead quiet, for a couple of minutes now - sound whatsoever! No wind, no rain - It's eerie - I know some will not agree, but I think it's passing over us now.

Also don't know how it's still a cat 1. Realistically it should just be a coastal gale warning, I'm not exaggerating when I say I could light a candle outside right now.

was wondering due to the placement of ita slightly inland which could mean that most of the wind would be at a higher altitude than the coast due to the mountains. Could the expected winds that everyone is not getting could be passing right over the top of Cairns. Just a query please enlighten if anyone has any idea's

Not a breath of wind here now. Got an SES text of flash flooding at Redlynch Valley about half an hour ago. Hope all is ok out that way.

Ita still lives on:

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 54
Issued at 9:15 pm EST on Saturday 12 April 2014

The Cyclone WARNING has been extended south and is now current for coastal
areas from Cape Tribulation to Mackay.

A Cyclone WATCH continues for coastal areas from Mackay to Yeppoon.

At 9:00 pm EST Tropical Cyclone Ita, Category 1, was estimated to be
55 kilometres south southeast of Port Douglas and
20 kilometres west southwest of Cairns, and
moving south southeast at 10 kilometres per hour.

Tropical Cyclone Ita is forecast to move to the southeast during the next 24
hours, most likely close to or just offshore of the southern tropical and
central coast, and is now expected to maintain tropical cyclone intensity.

GALES with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour are likely between Port Douglas and
Innisfail this evening, extending to Cardwell overnight. Gales may extend
further down the coast to Townsville and Mackay during Sunday, and to Yeppon
during Monday, if the system moves offshore.

As the cyclone tracks near the coast abnormally high tides are expected between
Cairns and Cardwell, but the sea level should not exceed the highest tide of
the year. Large waves are likely along the beachfront.

Heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding is currently occurring about the
east tropical coast and ranges between about Port Douglas and Ayr, and should
extend south to about Yeppoon during Sunday. Isolated 24 hour totals in excess
of 300mm are likely.

Tropical Cyclone Ita should move further southeast into the Coral Sea and away
from the Queensland coast during Monday and Tuesday. Rainfall will decrease
about the North Tropical Coast during Sunday and Monday as the system moves
away.

People between Cape Tribulation and Mackay, including Cairns and Townsville,
should take precautions and listen to the next advice.
- Information is available from your local government
- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster
Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)
- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) on
132 500 (for assistance with storm damage, rising flood water, fallen trees on
buildings or roof damage).

People between Mackay and Yeppoon should consider what action they will need to
take if the cyclone threat increases.
- Information is available from your local government
- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster
Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)
- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) on
132 500 (for assistance with storm damage, rising flood water, fallen trees on
buildings or roof damage).

Details of Tropical Cyclone Ita at 9:00 pm EST:
.Centre located near...... 17.0 degrees South 145.6 degrees East
.Location accuracy........ within 35 kilometres
.Recent movement.......... towards the south southeast at 10 kilometres per hour
.Wind gusts near centre... 100 kilometres per hour
.Severity category........ 1
.Central pressure......... 993 hectoPascals

The next advice will be issued by 10:00 pm EST Saturday 12 April.

~~~

Over open waters, along exposed coastline and on those coastal hillslopes, there probably are the odd, localised wind gusts getting to 90-100km/h.
