A brief period of new flaring convection overnight gave the cyclone some hope of intensifying but that was quickly dashed this morning as the Low Level Circulation Centre of Ann became fully exposed from any deep convective cloud. Unless it reforms this deep convective cloud again soon, its hours are numbered. There has never been a coastal cyclone crossing in Queensland's recorded history in May so we're hoping it holds on.
Nevertheless for now the Bureau Of Meteorology maintain a cyclone warning from Coen to Cooktown due to some strong winds expected to be experienced between the cyclone/LOW and a Strong HIGH in Victoria as shown in the below synoptic pattern.
The Cyclone should still produce some significant shower activity over the next 24-48 hours over NE Queensland and on Thursday and Friday some of these heavy showers will extend west into the Eastern half of the Territory's Top End.
