With Tropical Cyclone Oma bearing down on the Queensland coast, conditions around the Great Lakes have shifted and we can expect rain and strong winds in the coming days.
Possible showers are predicted from Friday through to Sunday, with strong southerly winds expected to reach upwards of 25 knots.
While the swell will be large along the coast, temperatures will remain in the low-to-mid 20s, with a range of 20 - 24 predicted for Friday, 19 - 24 for Saturday, and 19 - 22 for Sunday.
