Strong winds, large waves forecast for Queensland

Breaking Earth News
A low pressure system off Queensland's central coast is forecast to intensify overnight, whipping up large seas and gale-force winds. The system is expected to be around 500 kilometres off the coast of Yeppoon by tomorrow. The combined winds and waves will cause ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES along the southern and central coasts. "The south-east coastal area will start to feel the effects, a gradual increase in the winds through the early part of the weekend, and at this stage I think the worst part of the coast should be up around the Sunshine Coast up toward the Fraser Island area. Nonetheless the Gold Coast area will still experience the strong winds." Fraser Island, the Cooloola coast and northern parts of the Sunshine Coast are likely to be the first affected by the large waves. Conditions will be dangerous and unstable over the weekend. "Over the next few days, the further south you come towards the New South Wales border, things are going to get increasingly worse sort of leading to the weekend and over the weekend."
