Weather Situation

A trough will move continue to move north over the Peninsula through the remainder of the weekend with showers and thunderstorms focusing more through the northern and eastern Peninsula as a result. A ridge of high pressure will result in an onshore wind flow and a slight chance of 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 also maintain showers and thunderstorms over the Gulf Country for the next few days. Weak instability will combine with hot conditions to result in isolated gusty thunderstorms over parts of the southern inland during the remainder of the weekend and into early next week. Hot conditions will continue over western and southern parts of the state, particularly inland.
