No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Wednesday 14 November 2018.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near New Zealand will maintain a ridge over the east Queensland coast today. The ridge will weaken over the next few days as the high centre shifts to the southeast of New Zealand. Thunderstorm activity in the west of the state is associated with a surface trough over southwest Queensland. Showers and thunderstorms should extend further east into the southern and southeastern interior during today and Thursday as the trough system moves east. By Friday, the trough and its associated band of showers and thunderstorms should lie from the northwest to the far southeast of the state, with the trough likely to remain slow moving through Saturday.
