Maranoa and Warrego Forecast

View the current warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Friday 21 September 2018.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system will shift east over New South Wales today, maintaining a dry air mass over much of Queensland. The dry conditions will combine with gusty southeasterly winds to result in elevated fire dangers over parts of central and northwestern Queensland today. The drier air may also result in frost patches over the Maranoa and southeastern interior this morning. An upper trough will extend some cloud through the Peninsula district during today into early Saturday, though with only patchy light rain expected. Winds will gradually tend more onshore about the east coast today and through the weekend as the high centre shifts further east towards the Tasman Sea, resulting in the chance of some showers developing about the coast and nearby inland. Another upper trough will move east over the interior on Saturday, generating some cloud over the southern interior though with no rainfall expected due to a dry air mass persisting.

Forecast for the rest of Friday

Sunny. The chance of light frost in the east early this morning. Winds east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming southeasterly 20 to 30 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the late evening. Daytime maximum temperatures in the mid to high 20s.
