Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Saturday 21 October 2017.

Weather Situation

An upper trough and an associated cloud band and rain areas will shift further north and east into eastern districts today, most likely clearing much of the southern coast by Saturday evening and the east tropical coast early Sunday morning. An inland surface trough will also shift east and become slow moving from the central interior into the western Darling Downs over the weekend, providing a focus for storms. A coastal trough and gusty southerly wind change will extend north along the southern coast during Saturday and should then weaken while progressing further north during Sunday. A new upper trough will move east over far eastern districts on Monday, generating some instability and the chance of storms. A ridge of high pressure and mostly fine conditions will then extend into the state on Tuesday.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Cloudy. Very high (95%) chance of rain areas, decreasing to the medium (40%) chance of showers from the southwest during the afternoon and evening. The chance of thunderstorms inland this morning. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 25 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures around 19.
