Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Monday 27 May 2024.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system centred over southeastern Australia extends a ridge over Queensland, bringing onshore winds and isolated showers in the east, and settled conditions elsewhere. The high will drift slowly northeast into the Tasman Sea over coming days, maintaining the ridge over Queensland for much of the week ahead. A broad upper-level trough and associated surface trough will combine with tropical moisture to produce a cloud band and areas of rain in western and southern inland Queensland from Thursday, pushing east into the weekend.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Partly cloudy. Winds east to southeasterly 20 to 30 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.

Fire Danger - No Rating

Sun protection 9:10am to 3:40pm, UV Index predicted to reach 9 [Very High]
