Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Sunday 24 March 2019.

Weather Situation

Cyclone Trevor is located over the northeast of the Northern Territory and is expected to weaken below cyclone strength during this morning. Ex-tropical cyclone Trevor is then expected to move slowly southwards through the remainder of today and Monday. A weak ridge will persist along the east coast of Queensland during today and Monday, and will combine with ex-tropical cyclone Trevor to drag a moist air mass over much of northern and western Queensland over the next few days. An upper trough, moving eastwards across the south of the continent, is likely to bring the remnants of tropical cyclone Trevor, and areas of moderate to heavy rainfall, across southwestern Queensland and the southern interior during the week ahead.
