Weather Situation

A large, slow moving high pressure system in the Tasman Sea extends a firm ridge along the Queensland coast, which will remain in place through the week. A broad area of low pressure is developing over the northern interior of the continent and will remain slow moving this week. This setup will lead to tropical moisture extending through much of northern, central and western Queensland over the next few days. A series of upper troughs will maintain unstable conditions across much of the state through the week.
