According to, two tropical lows are heading towards the tip of North Queensland – and forecasters have warned that there’s a good chance they could develop into cyclones and hit the mainland.

Weather forecaster David Grant told the AAP today that it’s difficult to predict the storm’s movements as it’s moving so slowly.

“At the moment we couldn’t rule it out, as it’s still a fair way offshore, but it is moving towards the Queensland coast,” he said.

If a cyclone does form, it will be the fourth that the region has had so far during this wet season. And its name, should the cyclone materialise? Gillian, apparently.
