Forecast updated at 5:19 am EST on Tuesday 26 May 2020.

Weather Situation

A large high [1031 hPa] over Tasmania extends a ridge across western and northern Queensland, while a broad low pressure system remains slow moving off the New South Wales Coast. The combination of these systems will maintain a cool and relatively dry southwest to southerly flow across most of Queensland over the next few days. A broad upper trough will enter south western parts of the regions later Tuesday and progress eastwards during Wednesday. This is likely to result in a general increase in high level cloud through the southern half of the state, though nothing in the way of shower activity is expected.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday

Partly cloudy. Light winds becoming easterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the late afternoon. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.

Fire Danger - Low-Moderate

Sun protection 9:10am to 3:30pm, UV Index predicted to reach 9 [Very High]
