Cyclone Edna forms and fades away
JUST a day after tropical cyclone Dylan ravaged the Queensland coast, another low formed into a cyclone and hovered menacingly east of an already saturated Mackay.
But as quickly as she formed, Edna weakened into what could be the most forgettable cyclone in recent history.
Senior forecaster at the Bureau of Meteorology Michael Paech said Edna was downgraded to a tropical low on Saturday night while still about 310km east of Mackay.
It moved away from the Queensland coast and was not likely to return.
As it moved north, it maintained its distance from the coast and continued to de-intensify as the day progressed.
But cyclone season is far from over.
A low is predicted to form in the Gulf of Carpentaria this week.
This is unlikely to have any impact on Central Queensland weather.
But it's too early to get complacent.
A week is a long time in monsoon season.
