Southeast Coast Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Saturday 29 April 2017.

Weather Situation

A slow moving high pressure system over South Australia extends a firm ridge and a dry, cool air mass into much of Queensland. The high will gradually weaken while shifting slowly eastwards into the Tasman Sea on Sunday. Winds will then gradually tend more moist onshore about the east Queensland coast. A slow moving trough will likely develop over the interior of Queensland through next week. A new high will move into the western Great Australian Bight on Monday and shift slowly eastwards through next week and will push dry air into western Queensland to the west of the surface trough.

Forecast for the rest of Saturday

Clear. Winds south to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h becoming light in the late evening.

Sunday 30 April
