According to Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), category 3 cyclones are "very destructive" with typical gusts over open flat land of 165 - 224km/h.

A front and a warm air mass will push onto the lower South Island bringing heavy falls for the next two days.

"We'll constantly review the weather forecast over the next 48 hours and upon those reviews and weather forecasts, that's when we'll make a decision where it's safe enough to put the shark control equipment back out to sea", he said.

The BOM has issued a severe weather warning for hazardous surf from Tuesday onwards.

"It's all about when Omar recurs and some models are saying it won't and it will go off to Australia and other models are saying it will and that it might come down over parts of New Zealand and other models have it up to the north and playing around in the tropics".

Heavy rainfall, strong winds and storm surge are affecting central islands of Vanuatu.

The main southerly arrives Friday and this weekend and the new low forms around NZ this weekend.

Brisbane residents can expect to enjoy a mostly sunny day, with highs of 31 degrees forecast for the city.

"By then we'll start to see more average temperatures". At this stage there is still much uncertainty across the weather model outputs regarding where TC Oma will move so there is no definitive answer on its exact path at this point.

- The "C" shows where the cyclone will be this Saturday based on ECMWF, while the tracking with the Category numbers is the GFS plot. It will also create unsafe rips and currents at popular eastern Australian beaches over the next several days.

"Later in the week we are expecting high tides anyway, so any big swell coming in over the top of very high tides is going to create hazardous conditions".

ECMWF - Showing OMA being pushed back north into the Coral Sea by a large high over Tasmania, while a new low forms on the southerly over New Zealand.
