Weather Situation

A broad ridge of high pressure will then develop over southern Australia through next week. Moist onshore winds will combine with a weak upper trough to result in some showers persisting about the east tropical coast throughout the forecast period.

Warmer than average daytime temperatures will extend through much of western, central and southern Queensland, particularly the interior. A series of weak upper troughs will extend some patchy cloud across the far south of the state next week.
