Weather Situation

A broad upper trough that extends a cloud band across the south of the state will weaken as it moves slowly north this evening. A surface trough extending from the Mount Isa area to Fraser Island will move further north overnight, to reach the southern Gulf of Carpentaria and the North Tropical Coast tomorrow. A high will move over central Australia later today, extending a ridge across Queensland in the wake of the trough. As a result, dry and cool west to southwesterly winds are expected to extend across most of the state by Saturday.
