Two more cyclones possibly headed for northern QLD

TWO more cyclones could form around north Queensland in coming days, but are unlikely to pose huge risks to locals.

Weatherzone forecaster Guy Dixon said a monsoon trough over the country's north has set the right conditions for cyclone formation, including one approaching Queensland from the west.

"If you can imagine it forming on the western side of the Northern Territory, moving across as a low, and as soon as it hits the Gulf of Carpentaria it'll strengthen and just sit over the water there," he said.

"It will likely impact the Cape York peninsula between Sunday and Monday."

Mr Dixon said it could be followed by another cyclone system in the Coral Sea later on Monday.
