Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will move slowly east during the next few days, extending a weakening ridge into eastern Queensland. Moisture levels are increasing across the state as winds tend more onshore about the eastern Queensland coast. An upper level trough over the southwest of the state will move eastwards across the southern interior today whilst weakening. A more significant trough system will likely approach southwestern Queensland on Thursday and move east across the interior of the state on Friday, and then clearing the southern coast on Saturday.
