Tropical Cyclone Nathan, Forecast map as of 2:50PM

This cyclone has harassed the far north once already, wobbled out in the Pacific like a drunken cyclist as a tropical low, has gained strength again and is now making a bee-line for Cape Flattery.

As seen, it also looks like doing the same stunt headed for Gove once it’s finished touching up far north Queensland.  Whoever up there is doing this rain dancing, you can stop now, it’s seriously pissing off the weather gods.
