Tropical Cyclone Oma's future path not yet locked in

This week set to be the wettest of the year so far

"It seems like Oma is not done with Queensland just yet, as it is beginning to track back towards the east coast of Australia", 10's weather expert Josh Holt told 10 daily.

From today the coast will see surf conditions becoming risky as the weather system approaches.

Cyclone Oma, now affecting New Caledonia, is expected to head towards Queensland on it's south easterly path. It will also create risky rips and currents at popular eastern Australian beaches over the next several days.

"We are expecting significant wave heights that will cause some coastal erosion".

Fisheries Queensland Shark Control Program Manager Jeff Krause said they were removing the equipment so it didn't get damaged by the rough surf, and become a hazard to swimmers and boaties.

However, Mr Blazak said the warning was issued more for 1770 and further south and Yeppoon would miss out on much of the excitement, due to protection from the Great Barrier Reef.

Surf lifesaving volunteers and lifeguards have had their hands full already this weekend as the unsafe swells hit hard.

"You guys are sitting in the little sweet spot there where nothing happens", he said.

A driver was caught out taking on the big swell at Rainbow Beach, north of the Sunshine Coast, on Tuesday and was forced to abandon his ute, leaving it at the mercy of the pounding waves.

"Reflecting on what we've done with our beach nourishment over the past two years, including sand pumping, rainbowing onto the beach, and stockpiling 3 million cubic metres on the northern part of our beach, i believe we are well prepared", Mayor Tate said.

"Beaches at 1770 and south are going to be experiencing those stronger swells".
