Darling Downs and Granite Belt Forecast

View the current warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Thursday 23 May 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will move slowly eastwards over the next few days and will continue to extend a weakening ridge along the east coast of Queensland. Onshore winds and showers will continue along parts of the east coast and adjacent inland over the next few days, with more frequent showers about the Wet Tropics. Much of the interior of the state should remain fine and mostly sunny. A trough is likely to move across the state on Sunday, clearing off the southeast coast on Sunday night. This will introduce a cooler, drier air mass through central and southern Queensland early next week.

Forecast for the rest of Thursday

Mostly sunny. Slight (20%) chance of a shower over the Granite Belt in the late morning and afternoon. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low to mid 20s.

Fire Danger - High

Sun protection 9:30am to 2:00pm, UV Index predicted to reach 5 [Moderate]
