Quite gusty in Bilyana this morning. All eyes are obviously on ex-Iris, hoping that it moves South of here - we don't need any more heavy rainfall for the time being.

The last thing I would want is wind. Can you imagine how much damage could happen by falling trees in Cairns if you get some strong squalls now. I hope you don't get much.

Too soon to tell but looks like ex TC Iris will give all the good rain to the south? Thoughts? What are the probable scenarios? I know there is a thread on this, but I need easy-to-read terms smile

For people in parts of North Tropical Coast and Tablelands, Herbert and Lower Burdekin and Central Coast and Whitsundays Forecast Districts.

Issued at 4:56 pm Sunday, 1 April 2018.
Weather Situation:
Ex-tropical cyclone Iris was located at 4pm approximately 400km east-northeast of Cairns and moving south-southwest at 5 km/h. It is expected to move southward this evening and track closer to the coast on Monday and Tuesday. There remains some level of uncertainty regarding its movement and development over the coming days. There is a moderate chance that the system will develop into a tropical cyclone on Tuesday or Wednesday and Tropical Cyclone Advices will be issued if threat increases.
Damaging winds, with peak gusts of around 90km/h, may develop about the coast, islands and higher terrain within the warning area during Monday evening or Tuesday morning.
Heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is also expected to develop from Monday evening. Six hour totals of 150 to 200m are likely with local falls up to 300mm possible. 24 hour totals of 200 to 300mm are expected.
A Flood Watch for coastal catchments between Cairns and Rockhampton are current.
See www.bom.gov.au/qld/warnings to view the current flood warnings for Queensland.
Locations which may be affected include Proserpine, Bowen, Townsville, Palm Island, Hamilton Island, Ingham, Innisfail, Ayr and Cardwell.
