Weather Situation

A high pressure system near the southwestern border of Queensland will extend a firm ridge and a dry, cold airmass into much of the state as it shifts slowly eastwards over New South Wales during today and Wednesday. The high will lie near southeast Queensland on Thursday and should gradually weaken, with the ridge relaxing as a result. A surface trough will shift east over the southern interior of Queensland on Thursday before most likely contracting off the southern coast early Friday.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday 28 June

Partly cloudy. Slight (30%) chance of a shower about the coastal fringe, near zero chance elsewhere. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 25 km/h tending east to southeasterly during the morning and early afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures 21 to 28.
