Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Wednesday 26 June 2019.

Weather Situation

A large high over the Tasman Sea that extends ridge of high pressure along the east Queensland coast will move slowly eastwards during the next few days with the flow along the coast becoming more onshore in response. Meanwhile, an upper trough that is moving across the southeast part of the state today will shift into the Coral Sea early Thursday. The combination of the onshore flow and the passage of the upper trough is leading to cloudy conditions and scattered to widespread shower activity in the southeast quarter of the state. Showers will become more isolated in the southeast from Thursday as the upper trough shifts offshore. Showers will increase along the rest of the east coast during the next few days, particularly about the northeast tropics, as the flow becomes more onshore. Fine conditions are expected elsewhere in the state with overnight temperatures slowly rising in the coming days.
