The weather bureau says there is a chance of another tropical cyclone forming in north-west Queensland's Gulf of Carpentaria in the coming days.

Forecaster Rick Threlfall says a tropical low has developed over Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory and is expected to move eastwards.

He says there is a moderate chance of a cyclone developing but it is still too early to predict its movement.

"At the moment that low looks like it will move eastwards into the Gulf of Carpentaria and probably start to develop during the latter part of Tuesday into Wednesday," Mr Threlfall said.

"It looks like a fairly moderate chance of that developing into a tropical cyclone by Wednesday and really then it is just a matter of us monitoring it as it comes further eastwards."

Severe Tropical Cyclone Sandra is north-west of Noumea this morning and is expected to move south-south east.

The bureau says it is therefore expected to remain well away from the Queensland coast over the next few days.
