Cyclone Hamish weakens

FORMER Tropical Cyclone Hamish has weakened over night, and is now below tropical cyclone strength.

Located about 295 km north northeast of Sandy Cape, the low level remnant of the cyclone is currently moving to the north and is expected to curve onto a northwest track over the next 48 hours. It will remain parallel to the Queensland coast, and continue to gradually weaken.

A large high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea in combination with ex-tropical Cyclone Hamish is producing strong to gale force winds and large waves on the southeast Queensland and Capricornia coasts.

Dangerous surf and bar conditions are expected along the open coasts today, gradually easing tonight.
