Weather Situation

A high over southern Australia extends a cold, dry airmass into Queensland. An upper trough will extend a rain band eastwards through the southern interior on Sunday and into the southeast of the state Monday before contracting off the southern coast late Monday afternoon or evening. An associated surface trough will develop over the interior of the state during Sunday and then shift east, most likely contracting off the east Queensland coast late Monday afternoon. An even colder air mass will then extend into the state following the passage of this trough.
