Weather Situation

A large high east of New Zealand extends a ridge along the east coast of Queensland. The high will shift slowly east over the next few days, with the ridge gradually relaxing as a result. A weak trough and low pressure system lies off the far southeast coast, and will remain slow moving through today before shifting further offshore on Tuesday. A surface trough will move eastwards across southern inland Queensland tonight, approaching the southern coast during Tuesday morning.
