Weather Situation

A high in the Tasman Sea will remain slow-moving over the next few days and will continue to extend a ridge along the east coast of Queensland. A surface trough will approach the far southwest of Queensland later today and will move gradually north and eastwards over the interior over the next few days, likely entering southeast Queensland on Wednesday. A hot airmass is expected to linger over much of the interior of the state during the coming days, whilst sea breezes will ameliorate the hot conditions near the east coast.
