Weather Situation

A weak high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge into southern Queensland waters. The high will shift further east today. Northerly winds will likely freshen through far southern Queensland waters over the course of today ahead of a trough. This trough and an associated south to southwesterly wind change will then likely extend through southern Queensland waters during early Friday morning. Note that there is some uncertainty associated with the strength and movement of the trough. A new high pressure centre will move into southeastern Australia during Friday and extend a firm ridge into southern Queensland waters in the wake of the trough.
