Peninsula Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Saturday 25 May 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near New Zealand maintains a weakening ridge along the east coast of Queensland. Onshore winds and showers will continue along parts of the exposed east coast and adjacent inland over the next few days, with more frequent showers about the Wet Tropics. Much of the interior of the state should remain fine and mostly sunny. A trough is likely to move across the state on Sunday, clearing off the southeast coast on Monday night. This will introduce a cooler, drier air mass through central and southern Queensland early next week with frosts possible about Granite Belt on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
