Weather Situation

The high will drift slowly northeast into the Tasman Sea over coming days, maintaining the ridge over Queensland for much of the week ahead. A broad upper-level trough and associated surface trough will combine with tropical moisture to produce a cloud band and areas of rain in western and southern inland Queensland from Thursday, pushing east into the weekend.
