My sister writes adventure romance novels, and she is also a commercial airline pilot.
So she knows something about imagination, but she is also practical and keeps an eye on the weather.
She just sent me a link to this map of weather in our more or less immediate vicinity as a partial answer to my question as to whether Brisbane could face more flooding from a cyclone(s) making landfall and then coming south as a rain depression.
You can see Cyclone Anthony looking relatively anemic in central Queensland, but its “ugly sister” Yasi (ugly name too), looks huge off the coast.
It would be unwise for anyone in Queensland or northern New South Wales to put away their gumboots and shovels just yet.
