Weather Situation

A weak ridge over the east Queensland coast will be re-invigorated in the south over the weekend as a new high pressure system moving over the Great Australian Bight shifts east into the Tasman Sea early next week. Thunderstorm activity will persist near a surface trough extending from the northwest to the southeastern interior today and tomorrow, enhanced in the southeast of the state on today as a southeasterly change moves into the area. The surface trough is expected to start shifting westwards from Sunday, with upper troughing over the southern interior continuing to provide enhanced instability.
