Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Tuesday 23 April 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system will remain slow-moving over the Tasman Sea, maintaining the ridge along the Queensland east coast. An upper level low and its associated surface trough over southwestern Queensland is expected to move slowly eastwards across the state over the next few days. These features will lead to instability and potential for showers, thunderstorms and some patchy rain areas over the southern inland with few severe thunderstorms possible. By the middle of the week, the upper trough should be gradually weakening, but is now likely to remain over Queensland, and is expected to produce an increase in shower activity about the east coast between about Bowen and Gladstone during Wednesday and Thursday.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Partly cloudy. Medium (50%) chance of showers, most likely from late this morning. Winds east to southeasterly 20 to 30 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures in the mid to high 20s.

Fire Danger - Low-Moderate

Sun protection 8:40am to 3:00pm, UV Index predicted to reach 9 [Very High]
