Mr Hadley said: “Some of the modelling has even suggested it could come through as far south as Brisbane, but it would probably be an ex-tropical cyclone by then, in the longer term.”
“Potentially, we are looking at something crossing the coast next week or as early as late this weekend as some of the more recent guidance that we’ve been looking at shows,” he told the ABC Radio Brisbane on Tuesday.
“But more likely than not, it would be in the tropical areas of Queensland… it’s just really too early to say just yet.”
The BOM will continue to closely monitor and provide updates on the situation.
