Weather Situation

A high over New Zealand extends a firm ridge along the east coast of Queensland. The high will move slowly east across the Tasman Sea in the next few days, maintaining the ridge along the coast. A weak trough extends through Torres Strait and will also act to focus shower and thunderstorm activity. Over the coming week, a series of upper level troughs developing over southern Queensland will lead to a surface trough pushing eastwards across the southern interior, and will provide instability over the area. The trough over the far north is likely to begin to deepen early this week and a tropical low may develop over the far northwestern Coral Sea.

Forecast for the rest of Monday 30 March

Partly cloudy. Medium (50%) chance of showers and thunderstorms in the south late this afternoon and evening. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Winds northwest to northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h tending southeast to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the early afternoon then becoming light in the late afternoon.
