Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Sunday 3 July 2022.

Weather Situation

A strong high over the Great Australian Bight extends a ridge over most of the state. The high will slowly move east over the next several days, reaching the southern Tasman Sea mid-week, before another high moves into the Bight, maintaining the ridge. An upper trough will amplify over Queensland later today, intensifying a rain band over eastern Queensland as it moves east during Monday and Tuesday. The upper trough is likely to contract over southeastern Queensland on Wednesday, clearing the state by Thursday. A surface trough is forming in the offshore Coral Sea and northern Tasman Sea, deepening from Monday in response to the second upper trough. The surface trough and possible low next week are likely to remain well offshore.
