There needs to be a cut off time,like 24hrs to landfall. Makes it a bit more interesting.

I went for Bowen because large systems like this historically have seemed to pull a bit south of the forecast track as they interact with the land mass.

TSV, cause of the topology, i know i know, I did understand the explanations, but in my head that line of land south east to Harvey bay pushes it north west, and even though the resistance of land will pull it south that is only the sw quadrant, so it will free spin se/ne/nw, which means to me it will tend to go nw as it approaches land, especially if it's a daytime crossing which is expected.

I also went Bowen. Got a feeling it will hit between Bowen and Airlie. But radar is suggesting to me maybe Ayr so I felt that Bowen was a good central location to vote on.

That was my pick. Only 16% of votes, with most favouring poor old Bowen.

I initially thought Bowen but then remembered every cyclone in the history of QLD (slight exaggeration) drops south of the predicted strike zone.
