Weather Situation

A series of weak uppers will move across southern Queensland during the next few days, and combine with a slowly moving surface trough, to increase the potential of showers and possibly thunderstorms over the southeast and southeast interior. A more substantial upper trough is then likely to move across southern Queensland on Wednesday and Thursday, and combine with the surface trough, to further increase the potential of showers and thunderstorms. A high over the northern Tasman Sea extends a ridge along the tropical east coast. The high will slowly move eastwards over the coming days, with the ridge gradually weakening.
