The rain contracts northward on Saturday towards Nth coastal QLD .. Saturday the 2nd Nov

Looks like some low pressure troughing dipping down from the tropics with moisture from the coral sea

1km Gradient winds are indicating an embedded low developing inland from Emerald region within a trough west of the coast

This low intensifies thursdsay midnight with increasing winds and intensifying low
On Friday the low has shifted to inland QLD .
Saturday the low shifts North west and weakens near the gulf of Carpentaria

Most of the rain appears to be on the eastern flank of the low where the moist in-feed arrives from the warm Coral sea

I will post the gradient wind stream tomorrow which shows this strong sub-tropical low activity forming over the inland parts of QLD!!
