  • The low pressure system hanging over the Coral Sea continues to develop and could form into cyclone Linda by Tuesday afternoon

Some big waves are expected to pound the Gold Coast as Tropical Cyclone Linda passes by.

TROPICAL Cyclone Linda has formed in the Coral Sea this afternoon.

The cyclone is not expected to make landfall, but residents have been warned to brace for tidal flooding, strong winds and risky surf.

Tropical Cyclone Linda is expected to batter the Queensland coastline on Wednesday bringing risky surf.

The Bureau of Meteorology expected Linda to be downgraded to a low-pressure system as it loses strength on Wednesday morning.

The system will weaken throughout the day before turning south-east away from the coast.

A severe weather warning remains in place for coastal areas in the Wide Bay, Burnett and the south-east.

"A severe weather warning is still current for risky surf conditions and possible beach erosion, particularly for the east coast of Fraser Island and the Sunshine Coast, but it will extend south to the Gold Coast later today".

"Gale force winds over offshore waters across the southern flank of the low are expected to produce large east to southeasterly swells along exposed parts of the southern Queensland coast during today and Thursday", the bureau warned.

He said beaches are being closely monitored and will be closed if necessary.

The warning comes after the north of Queensland has been devastated by floods which last week was declared a disaster situation.
