Wild weather could be on way as Hadi spins back

HANG onto your hats Mackay - our region could be in for some more wild weather later this week.

While nothing is certain, the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting ex-Tropical Cyclone Hadi will spin its way back towards the east coast over the next few days.

A Bureau spokesperson said the former tropical cyclone would most likely approach the coast late tomorrow or Friday.

"We are still unsure whether it will form back into a cyclone," he said.

"At this stage ex-Tropical Cyclone Hadi will remain as a tropical low."

Yesterday, the Bureau said the low was south of the Solomon Islands and moving west.

Mackay can expect cloudy conditions and showers from today.

With more wet weather expected, Porters Mackay will host a timely SES storm safe demonstration from 9am-2pm on Saturday.
