Weather Situation

A surface trough lies from the northeastern interior to off the far southeastern coast of Queensland. Warm, humid air ahead of this trough lead to a very warm day across southeast Queensland today. A high over southern Western Australia extends a ridge of high pressure over much of the state in the wake of the trough. The high will move slowly eastwards over the next few days, maintaining the ridge across Queensland. Cooler, drier air should also return to most of the state over the next few days.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday 23 July

Mostly clear. Light winds.
