UPDATE 6.04PM: THE Bureau of Meteorology says tropical cyclone Tatiana is expected to stay away from the Queensland Coast.

Senior forecaster Peter Otto said BOM models show the cyclone would most likely move back out to sea by Monday.

"It is moving south-south west, but the guidance we've got says it won't hit the coast," Mr Otto said.

"There may be large waves in the waters off of Fraser Island with the wind speeds around this system, but our models show it will remain off shore."

A strong wind warning has been issued for Hervey Bay and the waters around Fraser Island for Saturday.

UPDATE 4.15PM: THE Fraser Coast's disaster management coordinator says people living in areas prone to flooding or isolation should not be complacent as cyclones could be unpredictable.

Mal Churchill said the latest information from the Bureau of Meteorology was that tropical cyclone Tatiana was not a threat to the Queensland Coast.

"We've got to be guided by what BOM is saying and they're saying there is no threat to the Queensland coast," Mr Churchill said.

"But there is no need to be complacent, you always need to be prepared; cyclones are unpredictable so we're watching it closely."
