Forecast issued at 4:30 pm EDT on Thursday 30 March 2017.
Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie over southeast Queensland is gradually moving south to southeast. At the same time a cold front and associated gusty southerly change, lying from the North West to the central part of the coast, is moving east. The interaction between this front and the humid airmass from the north is generating widespread rain across eastern districts. Heavy rain is expected in northeast, due to the approaching low pressure system. Conditions are expected to ease later Friday as the front and low move away to the east, although a new high developing south of the Bight will bring follow-up showers to eastern areas.
