Why Cyclone Oma seemed like a fizzer to much of Queensland

Unsafe beach conditions remain in Queensland and northern NSW despite cyclone Oma being downgraded to a sub-tropical low as it moves away from the coast.

The Tropical Cyclone was upgraded to a Category Two storm on Friday night, as it sat around 380 nautical miles east of Brisbane in the southern Coral Sea, but forecasters predict it will begin to lose steam and weaken to a tropical low on Saturday.

In Queensland, all Gold Coast beaches remain closed, while Surf Live Saving Queensland confirmed to Yahoo News the remaining beaches up to Bundaberg are now being monitored by lifesavers.

Surf life savers are urging people to stay away from beaches and to avoid placing their lives at risk.

Beachgoers in southern Queensland and northern NSW have been warned of risky surf and wind conditions as a cyclone tracks off the Queensland coast.

"It does look like it's going to start moving north again, possibly northwest back towards the northern Queensland coast", the Bureau of Meteorology's Michael Knepp told AAP.

Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. The Aurora Cannabis Inc . has shown a weekly performance of -2.62% and monthly performance stands at 14.05%.

While the cyclone is moving away, Queenslanders are being warned that risky surf conditions remain.

'But that's still far away into the future'.

NSW SES officer Mark Somers warned waves are going to be bigger and more damaging, and are so unsafe even rescue services may not be able to head out in the water.

While torrential rain and brutal winds abated, the combination of last week's king tides, massive waves and storm surge pushed water higher up the beach than normal, eating into the coast.

"It's a little bit more eastwards than forecast so that's the reason why there's not as much rainfall as forecast".

The system was predicted to move north next week.
