ALL GOOD @ WPR - TROPICAL LOW ADVICE / WEATHER UPDATE: STARTING WITH A BIT OF WIND 🌬💨😉& FINISHING WITH A WEEKS WORTH OF SUNSHINE, RETURNING TOMORROW SAT 14/3.🌤

13 Mar 2020 3:27 PM -


As @ 10.56am AEST Fri 13/3/20 - B.O.M. advise there are no current cyclone warning or cyclone watch zones associated with this low. This morning we had a bit of gusty wind and still going about normal activities. The gale type 34+ knot winds were well to the East, more offshore in some of those more exposed parts. Expectations are for this low to continue moving in a SE direction AWAY from the Queensland Coast towards Noumea / Norfolk Island in the next few days. Although there is also an expectation it will further develop it will be with minimal impact to us, as any intensification is proportionate with its movement AWAY to the SE. Winds already dropping to a bit of a breeze as we post. Almost wasn't going to post/ blog anything, just wanting to reassure the parents of our in-house VIP guests that all is well @ Whitsunday Pet Resort 🐶🐱🐣🙂👍
By the way a very nice Whit🌞SUN🌞day is supposed to be breaking through tomorrow and continue shining for the next 7 days☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ Tip - pick the 'sunniest app', we do! 😉
