Uh-Oh. More Storms Have Queensland In Their Paths

Both the European Center and GFS models predict that the remains of Tropical Cyclone Anthony will regenerate into a tropical storm late this week and hit Queensland early next week. A second and potentially more powerful storm is forecast to form next week in the islands to the east of Australia, and threaten Queensland at the end of the week.

This is potentially terrible news for Australia, which is attempting to recover from record floods. As reported in the latest Bureau of Meteorology climate statement and flood summary, the past four months (September – December) have been the rainiest such period in Queensland’s history, and the resulting flooding disaster has been Australia’s most expensive natural disaster in history.
