Weather Situation

An upper level trough over southern Queensland will move eastwards across the southeast of the state this evening, and clear off the southeast coast tomorrow. A relatively dry airmass has become established through much of the state as a ridge extends eastwards across Queensland from a high over southern Australia, and this dry air will remain in place over the weekend. Another upper level trough may approach the southwest of the state during Tuesday, extending a cloud band into western parts of Queensland.
