Southeast Coast Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Saturday 19 January 2019.

Weather Situation

A trough moving west onto the northeast tropical coast will result in enhanced showers and possible thunderstorms in this zone, with this enhanced activity then gradually focusing more through the northern and eastern Peninsula during the weekend as the trough shifts further northwest. A ridge of high pressure will result in an onshore wind flow and some showers about the remaining east coast north of about Fraser Island. Fine and mostly sunny conditions will continue over the southeast coast and into the central interior. A moist and unstable air mass will maintain showers and thunderstorms over the Gulf Country and far northwest of the state, more likely near the Gulf of Carpentaria coast. Weak instability will combine with hot conditions to result in isolated gusty thunderstorms over parts of the southern inland during the weekend and into early next week. Hot conditions will continue over western and southern parts of the state, particularly inland.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Hot and mostly sunny. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures 31 to 38.
