  • Queensland is still reeling from heavy flooding as cyclone Uesi approaches

The extratropical cyclone will reach the west of the South Island on Sunday while nearly retaining its "tropical" power, bringing heavy rain along the west coast for 24 hours and will be closest to the southwest coast late Sunday night before sliding southwards on Monday.

Sustained winds near the centre of the cyclone are hitting 110kph with wind gusts to 155kph. Air pressure isn't likely to change much between today and Sunday.

As of 8:30am Friday Uesi was passing directly over the top of Lord Howe Island.

Local media reported that the island's roughly 400 residents and 400 visitors may become trapped with preparations being made to extend people's accommodation arrangements to ensure that tourists remain safe.

So far the Pacific Island nations of New Caledonia and Vanuatu have already endured heavy downpours, rough seas and flooding as Uesi passed them by.

Just a week on from severe flooding that saw multiple towns evacuated, more heavy rain is forecast this weekend as Uesi tracks down the South Island.
