TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

Cancellation of Severe Thunderstorm Warning
For people in Southeast Coast Forecast District.

Issued at 8:39 pm Saturday, 18 May 2024.

Severe thunderstorms are no longer expected about the Southeast this evening.

Weather Situation: An upper low generated severe thunderstorms across the Southeast Coast this evening, though the storms have now pushed offshore and eased over the land.

The immediate threat of severe thunderstorms has passed, but the situation will continue to be monitored and further warnings will be issued if necessary.

Emergency services advise people to:
* Never drive, walk, play or ride through floodwater. It is dangerous.
* Stay away from storm water drains.
* Stay away from fallen powerlines.
* Drive slowly and never drive through floodwaters. If the road is flooded or damaged, go another way.
* For storm help, call the SES on 132 500 or download the free SES Assistance QLD app.


If severe thunderstorms develop in the Southeast Queensland area (east of Dalby from Rainbow Beach to Stanthorpe), a more detailed Severe Thunderstorm Warning will be issued to people in this area.

Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 210. The Bureau and emergency services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.

REMARKS:
Ex-Tropical Cyclone Paul has weakened to be a tropical low.

Ex-TC Paul was located using animated VIS imagery but with low confidence.
Gales have been confined to within 30nm of the centre in only the southwest
quadrant based on SMOS and SMAP information received around 19UTC. An ASCAT
pass at 2240 UTC arrived after analysis was completed and confirms strongest
winds are confined to the southwest quadrant and may already be below gale
force intensity.

The intensity of 35 knots is based on previous SMOS and SMAP information, and
sits within the range of objective aids. Dvorak curved band analysis has become
very challenging due to the rapid break down of the system, and a significant
reduction of curvature, but on average over the last 3 hours a wrap of 0.3
gives a DT of 2.0. MET is 2.0 with a rapid weakening trend as deep convection
becomes mostly confined to the southeast of the centre. No adjustment to MET.
FT=2.0 with CI held higher at 2.5. Objective aids (1-minute):  ADT 37kn; AiDT
34kn; DPRINT 30kn; SATCON 46kn. ADT RawT is 2.3

Ex-TC Paul remains in a region of high SSTs (29.5-30C) however environmental
conditions are otherwise unfavourable for development. Wind shear at 0000 UTC
was analysed as 21 kt from the NW (from CIMSS) and dry air is encroaching.
Further weakening is expected on Friday before the system dissipates by Sunday.


Ex-TC Paul has been slow moving with the influence of a mid-level ridge to the
northeast and mid-level trough. The low level ridge to the west southwest is
expected to become more dominant throughout Friday and a northwest track is
expected.

REMARKS:
Severe Tropical Cyclone Megan at category 3 (75 kn) intensity made landfall at
0600 UTC on the southwestern Gulf of Carpentaria coast.

Megan continues to weaken as it tracks inland of the Gulf of Carpentaria coast,
though the low level centre position is becoming more uncertain as the cloud
signature loses coherence. Position is based on proximal surface observations,
peripheral radar data, and extrapolation.

Dvorak analysis is now not applicable with the centre over land, with most
objective guidance similar. Intensity is now estimated to be at around 40 knots
based on an inland decay model. All surrounding observation sites are no longer
showing gale force winds as the system tracks further inland.

The system is expected to be downgraded to a tropical low during this morning
before it tracks west through the Northern Territory over the next few days
under the influence of a mid-level ridge to the south. Heavy rainfall will
accompany the low as it tracks over northern Australia in the following days.

The low may approach the Kimberley coast late in the week, but
reintensification over water is not expected in the next 7 days.
