Tropical Cyclone Ita was kind enough to weaken to the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane before making landfall. At one point it had been nearly as strong as a Cat 5 hurricane. It's expected to curve back out to the ocean after dumping a ton of rain and wind on the people of Queensland. It's also quite a spiffy looking storm if I may say so.
And how cool is this windmap from nullschool.net?
