"The large majority of the forecast models at his stage have an upper trough helping to shift the cyclone away from Australia later in the week towards New Zealand", he said.

While we talk about GFS and ECMWF there are literally hundreds of weather computer models and IBM, who we are partnered with, has New Zealand's most powerful weather super computer which we have exclusve access to and is used to make up your local 10 day forecasts here at WeatherWatch.co.nz.

The eye of the cyclone remains out at sea where winds are blowing at about 150 km/h, but the strength of Oma is still increasing.

The forecaster said depending on what the pressure system did it could either mean Oma directly hit New Zealand, gently guided it north of the country or turned it around and pushed it back north.

MetService head of weather communications Lisa Murray said it was too early to be definitive about whether Tropical Cyclone Oma would hit.

Fisheries Queensland Shark Control Program Manager Jeff Krause said they were removing the equipment so it didn't get damaged by the rough surf, and become a hazard to swimmers and boaties.

"Tropical Cyclone Oma is moving in a south, south-westerly direction and we expect it to remain off shore".
