Fizzling out to a shadow of its former glory, ex-Cyclone Imogen has left the potential for storms and heavy rainfall for the Mackay region in its wake.

A spokeswoman from the Bureau of Meteorology said the expected storm activity in the Mackay region was forecast to arrive Tuesday and extend into Wednesday.

Data from BOM shows the system is moving east and will be near the north tropical coast from Tuesday.

It's predicted to extend into the central coast by Wednesday.

Tropical Cyclone Imogen crossed the coast near Normanton today and began to slowly transition into a tropical low.
