Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Wednesday 22 May 2024.

Weather Situation

A high centred near South Australia extends a firm ridge over the state. The high will move slowly east over the next few days, maintaining the ridge while turning winds more onshore and gradually pushing moisture back inland. The high will linger near Tasmania over the weekend and into early next week. A weak trough may develop over interior Queensland from Friday, helping to draw moisture well inland and lead to milder mornings. The trough will contract to the west of the state over the weekend and early next week, and may combine with another trough approaching from central Australia to bring more unsettled conditions from the middle of next week.
