Weather Situation

A large high pressure system over Tasmania will move slowly eastwards into the western Tasman Sea over the next few days, extending a relatively dry air mass across much of inland Queensland. Along the east coast, winds will tend sufficiently onshore to produce a few showers, south of Bowen this evening, then extending further north from Tuesday. Weak instability provided by eastwards moving upper troughs will lead to a few thunderstorms in the south this evening and Wednesday, mainly over offshore waters, but potentially affecting the coastal fringe of the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. Showers are also likely to spread a little further to the eastern inland on Wednesday under the influence of the second upper trough, before contracting back to the coast later in the week as this feature moves offshore. Fine conditions are expected otherwise, areas of morning frost over southern and central inland parts on Tuesday morning, clearing by Wednesday as overnight temperatures rise.
