Queensland, Say G'day To Your New Mate: Tropical Cyclone Linda

Queensland, Say G'day To Your New Mate: Tropical Cyclone Linda

The low-pressure system in the Coral Sea intensified into a category one system on Tuesday afternoon.

Unsafe surf with waves up to four metres high are expected to lash the Queensland coastline as Tropical Cyclone Linda makes its way south.

The cyclone is not expected to make landfall, but residents have been warned to brace for tidal flooding, strong winds and unsafe surf.

It's likely the Bureau of Meteorology will reclassify Linda as a subtropical low pressure system, but high tides, gusty winds and risky surf will still affect Southeast Queensland on Wednesday and Thursday.

Tropical Cyclone Linda is expected to batter the Queensland coastline on Wednesday bringing unsafe surf.

The system will weaken throughout the day before turning south-east away from the coast.

Virginia's DeAndre Hunter to Miss NCAA Tournament After Suffering Wrist Injury
With Hunter out, U.Va. will likely rely even more on key bench players Nigel Johnson at guard and Mamadi Diakite at forward. Hunter suffered a broken left wrist during the Cavaliers' run at the conference tournament in Brooklyn last week.

But forecasters don't believe the weather system will strengthen into a cyclone, and it's not even expected to dump much rain.

A severe weather warning is in place, and Surf Lifesaving Queensland says it will monitor conditions before deciding whether to close any beaches on the Gold or Sunshine coasts.

Risky waves of up to four metres are likely for the state's southeast tomorrow.

Tides are also expected to be higher than normal, particularly on Thursday morning's high tide.

Unsafe surf conditions are expected along Queensland's south coast.

It comes after weeks of heavy rainfall battered Queensland, leaving parts of the far north washed out and towns completely under water.
