@whonose123 Yeah, it just made Landfall as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale which is equivelent to Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Typhoon on the JMA Scale, Severe Cyclonic Storm on the Indian Scale, or Intense Tropical Cyclone on the Meteo France Scale for comparison of various Tropical Cyclone Scales.

This is the first named storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season that was named in the region (Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was in the Australian Region but reached naming intensity within Meteo France La Reunion's Area of Responsibility before entering tde Australian Tropical Cyclone Basin)

@Codeawayhaley I have been through a few of those buggers over the years... It will cause some chaos as it rains down through Qld as a depression ..

@whonose123 yeah, what we're hoping for to some extend, the few years of El Nino has made it pretty dry around here that most of the state is in Drought...

Though kind of wish I was closer to this system it would have been an interesting chase, I haven't chased a Tropical Cyclone in a few years.
