Weather Situation

Ex-tropical cyclone Trevor is located over western Queensland, and is expected to move slowly east-southeastwards across the interior of Queensland in the coming days. A weak ridge will persist along the east coast of Queensland over the next few days and will combine with ex-tropical cyclone Trevor to draw a very moist, tropical air mass southwards over much of Queensland through the week. An upper trough is likely to interact with ex-tropical cyclone Trevor, bringing areas of moderate to heavy rainfall across southwestern Queensland initially and then across parts of the central interior during the week. There remains some uncertainty regarding the exact movement of the system and therefore where the heaviest rainfall will occur. Cool conditions over western Queensland, extending across much of interior through the remainder of the week.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday 26 March
