Picture-perfect weather in the wake of north Qld cyclone
DESPITE warnings of severe weather over the weekend, Fraser Coast residents are enjoying mild conditions as ex-tropical cyclone Ita heads out to sea.
Fraser Coast disaster co-ordinator Mal Churchill said while several camp areas on the east coast of Fraser Island were closed, the Fraser Coast had ultimately dodged a bullet.
"A lot of campers moved voluntarily as winds were projected to be between 90 and 100kmh," he said.
"Bureau of Meteorology has cancelled the severe weather warning so that's basically it for us, hopefully we get some really nice weather for Easter."
The bureau has predicted a shower or two in Hervey Bay and Maryborough on Thursday but sunny days from Friday to Monday.
