Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight will move slowly eastwards over southern Australia through the week, extending a firm ridge and a cool, dry air mass into much of Queensland. An upper trough will extend a band of high-level cloud across northern and central parts of the state during today and Tuesday but no rainfall is expected with this cloud band due to dry air near the surface.

Forecast for the rest of Monday 29 May

Partly cloudy. Winds east to southeasterly 15 to 25 km/h.
