Weather Situation

A moist and unstable air mass will persist across the far north of the state over the next few days resulting in some showers and isolated thunderstorms. A moderate to high chance of showers about the northeast tropical coast, decreasing during the day as a trough over the Coral Sea moves northwards through the region. Weak instability will combine with hot conditions to result in isolated thunderstorms over parts of southern Queensland during the next few days, but with little rainfall expected. A ridge of high pressure will extend over southeastern Queensland and the central interior through the forecast period, resulting in fine conditions. Hot conditions in the west of the state and across the southern interior over the next few days with severe heatwave conditions in the south.
