Peninsula Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Sunday 21 July 2019.

Weather Situation

A slow-moving high pressure system over the northern Tasman Sea extends a ridge and a stable, cool and dry airmass over much of Queensland, leading to fine weather throughout the state. The high will continue to move very slowly eastwards with the wind flow trending more onshore along the Queensland east coast. Over the next few days some showers will return to parts of eastern Queensland as low level moisture returns with this onshore flow and a weak upper level trough moves over the state. Morning frosts confined to the Granite Belt as overnight temperatures gradually increase.
