TROPICAL CYCLONE INFORMATION BULLETIN
For 4:16 pm EST on Tuesday 13 March 2018
At 4 pm AEST Tuesday, Tropical Cyclone Linda (Category 1) with central pressure
994 hPa was located in the Coral Sea near latitude 19.3 south longitude 159.5
east, which is about 880 km northeast of Sandy Cape and 1100 km east of Mackay.
Tropical cyclone Linda, a category 1 cyclone, has formed in the Coral Sea.
Tropical cyclone Linda is expected to continue to move southwest towards the
Queensland coast for the next 24 hours, before turning south and ultimately
southeast away from the coast again.
On Wednesday, conditions will become unfavourable for tropical cyclone Linda,
and it is expected to transition into an intense subtropical low.
At its closest approach to the coast, the remains of tropical cyclone Linda
will generate large waves and dangerous surf conditions about exposed southern
Queensland beaches. Tides are also expected to be higher than normal,
particularly on Thursday morning's high tide. A severe weather warning is
current for these conditions.
