Qld cyclone warning: Tropical Cyclone Linda forms

THE tropical low that's been hovering off the Queensland coast has reached Category 1 cyclone strength and has been officially named by the Bureau of Meteorology.

Residents are being warned to be alert but not alarmed after the cyclone formed off the Queensland coast on Tuesday. Large waves and unsafe surf is expected to be whipped up by Linda as it edges towards the southeast coast on Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday, it is predicted TC Linda will transition into an intense subtropical low as conditions become unfavourable.

"There still will be showers especially around our coastal regions over the next couple of days, but because this system is anticipated to remain offshore, that's why the heavier rain will remain off the coast as well".

Risky surf conditions are expected along Queensland's south coast. "I really don't think Linda is going to survive much of this morning", said forecaster Michelle Berry.

A severe weather warning is in place, and Surf Lifesaving Queensland says it will monitor conditions before deciding whether to close any beaches on the Gold or Sunshine coasts.

Surf Life Saving Queensland said beachgoers need to be extra vigilant with waves up to four metres possible.

Big seas are expected from Wide Bay down to the NSW border from Wednesday, while abnormally high tides could impact coastal areas from Thursday.

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