Tropical cyclone warning issued for Queensland
Weather forecasters are keeping a close eye on a tropical low in Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria.
The tropical low is continuing to move west over the Gulf while developing further.
The Bureau of Meteorology’s Jess Gardner says there is a high chance it will develop into a tropical cyclone early tomorrow.
Heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, is likely across the state’s far north over the next few days.
