Weather Situation
Cyclone Trevor is located over the northeast of the Northern Territory and is
expected to weaken below cyclone strength during this morning. Ex-tropical
cyclone Trevor is then expected to move slowly southwards through the remainder
of today and Monday. A weak ridge will persist along the east coast of
Queensland during today and Monday, and will combine with ex-tropical cyclone
Trevor to drag a moist air mass over much of northern and western Queensland
over the next few days. An upper trough, moving eastwards across the south of
the continent, is likely to bring the remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor, and
areas of moderate to heavy rainfall, across southwestern Queensland and the
southern interior during the week ahead.

Forecast for the rest of Sunday 24 March
A high to very high chance of showers and thunderstorms across much of the
north and northwest of the state, with the slight to moderate chance of a
shower or storm over remaining parts north of about Mackay to Boulia. A slight
to medium chance of showers and thunderstorms will also extend into remaining
parts of western Queensland. A medium chance of showers about the central
coast. The remainder of the state should be mostly fine with only a slight
chance of shower or thunderstorm about the border with New South Wales. Maximum
temperatures will rise further over the southern interior and southeast of the
state to be several degrees above the March average. Mostly moderate east to
northeast winds, tending north to northwesterly in the south, with fresh and
gusty winds about the northwest of the state.

Forecast for Monday 25 March
An upper trough will strengthen and move eastwards across the south of the
continent and is likely to combine with the remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor
to extend rain areas and isolated thunderstorms across southwestern Queensland
and into the Warrego district. Moderate to heavy falls are likely in the
southwest of the state and damaging winds are also possible, particularly with
thunderstorms. A high to very high chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms
will also persist about the north and northwest of the state in the moist and
unstable airmass. A medium chance of showers will persist about the Central
Coast in the onshore winds. The southeast corner of the state should remain
fine and mostly sunny. Maximum temperatures will remain several degrees above
the March average in the southeast of the state but will cool significantly in
the west and southwest as cloud cover and precipitation increases.

Forecast for Tuesday 26 March
The remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor are likely to move slowly eastwards
across the southwest of the state but there remains some uncertainty regarding
the movement of the system. Areas of rain and isolated thunderstorms are likely
to continue across the southwest of the state and also parts of the southern
interior with further moderate to heavy falls possible in the Channel Country
and the Maranoa and Warrego district. A high to very high chance of showers and
storms will continue across the north and northwest of the state in the moist
and unstable airmass. A slight to medium chance of showers and possible storms
may extend into the southeast of the state later in the day. Cool to cold
conditions will extend through the west and southern interior with maximum
temperatures falling well below the March average.

Forecast for Wednesday 27 March
The upper trough over the south of the continent is expected to move into the
interior of the state with areas of rain, showers and thunderstorms extending
eastwards through parts of the central and southern interior. Further moderate
to heavy falls are possible. A high to very high chance of showers and the
chance of a storm in the far southeast of the state. Showers and thunderstorms
will continue over northern Queensland in a moist and unstable air mass, with
the slight to moderate chance of a shower through the remainder of the state.
Cool conditions will continue through the west and southern interior and spread
to central parts, with maximum temperatures falling well below the March
average.

Outlook for Thursday 28 March to Saturday 30 March
The upper trough over the south of the continent will gradually move eastwards
through the outlook period with areas of rain, showers and thunderstorms
extending eastwards across much of central and eastern Queensland. Further
moderate to heavy falls are possible about parts of the interior on Thursday,
but become less likely from Friday onwards. Showers and thunderstorms will
continue over northern and eastern Queensland in the moist and unstable air
mass with some locally heavy falls possible. Fine and mostly sunny conditions
will extend into western Queensland on Thursday, extending into the central
interior on Friday. Cool conditions will persist over much of the interior of
the state through the outlook period.

The next routine forecast will be issued at 4:30 pm EST Sunday.

public phones.

REMARKS:
Tropical cyclone Trevor remains a marginal category 1 cyclone, located just over
land near Arukun on the western side of Cape York Peninsula. The centre was
located with high confidence using Weipa radar and hi-resolution visible
satellite imagery. Satellite and radar imagery shows that deeper convection is
starting to re-develop on the northern side of the circulation centre.

The atmospheric environment remains extremely favourable for re-intensification
as tropical cyclone Trevor moves offshore this evening, with low vertical wind
shear and SSTs around 30-31C. Rapid re-intensification is therefore considered
likely. NWP models are in agreement of a much larger and intense system
developing once it pushes further west over central Gulf of Carpentaria waters.

A short wave upper trough is pushing across southern Queensland, hence the slow
movement of the cyclone in the short term, but as a stronger sub-tropical ridge
develops over the interior of the Australian continent tomorrow, the cyclone
should start to develop a more steady west-southwestwards track.

A land impact as a severe tropical cyclone appears highly likely later in the
week or weekend on the Northern Territory side of the Gulf of Carpentaria.

Borroloola. Tropical Cyclone Trevor is now expected to move inland through the
Carpentaria and into the Barkly district while weakening, though is forecast to
maintain tropical cyclone intensity until tomorrow morning.
Refer to the latest Tropical Cyclone Advices and Forecast Track Map for further
details on this system [www.bom.gov.au/cyclone]. For impacts after Tropical
Cyclone Trevor weakens into a tropical low, see the corresponding severe
weather warning [www.bom.gov.au/nt/warnings].

Likelihood of this system remaining a tropical cyclone in the Northern Region
on:
Sunday          High.
Monday          Very Low.
Tuesday         Very Low.

Potential Cyclones:

There are no other significant lows in the region and none are expected to
develop during the next three days.

Likelihood of another system being a tropical cyclone in the Northern Region on:
Sunday          Very low.
Monday          Very low.
Tuesday         Very low.



NOTES: The likelihood is an estimate of the chance of each system being a

REMARKS:
At 3:30am CST Sunday, the remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor were located by
satellite over land around 320km inland from the southwestern coast of the Gulf
of Carpentaria. Deep convection is now completely absent from the central
circulation, with the nearest convective band displaced some 120 nautical miles
to the east.

Dvorak analysis is not possible with the system over land. There is currently
little in the way of peripheral observations. McArthur River Mine, some 250km to
the north of the current position, was the last station to experience marginal
category 1 wind gusts prior to 8pm CST Saturday. Standard decay rates suggest
the system would be close to or below TC thresholds. Intensity is therefore set
at 30 knots.

NWP models are in good agreement with a southwest track initially, steered by
the mid level subtropical ridge. The system will be steered to the south during
Sunday as an approaching shortwave trough weakens the ridge. The remnants of the
cyclone will track southeast on Monday towards Queensland.
