Weather Situation

Ex-tropical cyclone Debbie is currently located over the central interior of Queensland and is expected to slowly track southeastwards over the next few days before shifting off the southeast Queensland coast during Thursday night into Friday. The system is then expected to develop further off the southeast coast during Friday with gale force winds likely to develop through southern coast waters. A ridge will build through western Queensland through Thursday and Friday, extending drier and cooler air into much of the west of the state. This ridge will build through much of Queensland over the weekend with fine and mostly sunny conditions developing over much of the state.
