Tropical Cyclone Nora formed to the north of Nhulunbuy on 22 March 2018. Tropical Cyclone Nora moved eastwards and will begin a more southeasterly path during 23 March and Saturday into the Gulf
of Carpentaria. The system reached Category 3 during the 23rd and reach.
Nora made a coastal crossing near Pomporrow along the western Cape York Peninsula on the 24 March. Tropical Cyclone Nora as a Category 2 cyclone, tracked southwards over land near the western
Cape York Peninsula coast before weakening to a tropical low.
Ex-tropical cyclone Nora is slowly moving down the west coast of Cape York, near Gilbert River Mouth. On the current forecast track, ex-tropical cyclone Nora is expected to move back over
southeast Gulf of Carpentaria waters during Monday and if this were to occur it is possible that it could reform back into a tropical cyclone by Tuesday. However, given the forecast track of Nora
is quite close to the coast, the possibility of it moving back over water sooner cannot be ruled out.
