Weather Situation

A weak high pressure cell will extend over New South Wales, southeastern Queensland and into the southern Coral Sea during the next few days. 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. Fine and mostly sunny conditions will extend over much of the remainder of the state through to early next week, with some early frost patches expected over the southern and central interior. 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.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday 24 June
