Cyclone could hit Queensland as early as next week

METEOROLOGISTS are monitoring a weather pattern in the Coral Sea that could develop into a cyclone.

The model indicates that the pattern will turn into a cyclone and could produce winds of up to 169km/h.

Oz Cyclone Chasers' update released yesterday revealed 30 per cent of their computer models showed a cyclone developing next week.

The Bureau of Meteorology's tropical cyclone outlook, also released yesterday, showed a "very low" chance of a cyclone developing tomorrow and Thursday, but increased to "low" on Friday.
