Weather Situation

A broad upper trough that extends a cloud band across the south of the state will weaken as it moves slowly north throughout today. A significant surface trough over the southern interior will move northeastwards across the state today and tomorrow. A high will move over central Australia later today, extending a ridge across Queensland in the wake of the trough. As a result, dry and cool west to southwesterly winds are expected to extend across most of the state by Saturday.

Forecast for the rest of Friday 27 May

Partly cloudy. Medium (50%) chance of showers this morning. Areas of drizzle about the eastern ranges this morning. Winds southwesterly 20 to 30 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures between 19 and 23.
