Capricornia Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Tuesday 24 September 2019.

Weather Situation

A high over the Bight extends a ridge along the east coast, and is pushing some moisture across Queensland's east coast. A surface trough is slowly drifting through eastern Queensland, along with a southeasterly change which moved north along the coast from New South Wales late last night. Both troughs will weaken and wash out during today. An upper trough will bring plenty of high cloud, but very little rainfall, to western and central Queensland through today and tomorrow. This system will move into the southeast of the state on Thursday, with showers, isolated thunderstorms and rain areas becoming more likely as it meets low-level moisture closer to the coast.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Partly cloudy. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the middle of the day then becoming east to northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h in the early afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.

Fire Danger - High

Sun protection 8:20am to 3:20pm, UV Index predicted to reach 10 [Very High]
