Weather Situation

A broad area of low pressure extends over the southern half of the state, with heat wave conditions extending through much of southern Queensland and into central districts. Instability and the chance of storms will persist over much of the state over the next few days aside from central coastal districts. A surface trough will likely enter the southwest of the state today, propagate east, and approach the southeast on Saturday. A cooler airmass will extend through southern Queensland in the wake of a southeasterly change that moves into the southeast quarter of the state on Saturday afternoon.

Winds north to northeasterly 25 to 35 km/h turning northwesterly in the late morning then decreasing to 15 to 25 km/h in the late afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures 36 to 41.
