Sunshine Coast Waters Forecast: Double Island Point to Cape Moreton

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 3:50 pm EST on Sunday 25 August 2019.

Weather Situation

A high [1021 hPa] over the northern Tasman Sea will move slowly east in the coming days and extend a weak ridge across southern Queensland leading to generally light winds. Winds are tending northerly south of Fraser Island this afternoon as a surface trough moves across southern Queensland and a southerly change moves north along the northern New South Wales coast. However, the trough and southerly change are likely to stall and weaken before reaching the southeast coast. A new high will then move into the Tasman Sea on Monday and maintain a weak ridge into southern Queensland waters.
