Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

Weather Situation

Ex-tropical cyclone Trevor is located over western Queensland, and is expected to move slowly east-southeastwards across the interior of the state in the coming days. A weak ridge will persist along the east coast of Queensland over the next few days and will combine with ex-tropical cyclone Trevor to draw a very moist, tropical air mass southwards over much of the state through the week. An upper trough is interacting with ex-tropical cyclone Trevor, bringing areas of moderate to heavy rainfall across central inland Queensland during the week. There remains some uncertainty regarding the exact movement of the system and therefore where the heaviest rainfall will occur. Elsewhere, a trough and southerly change is through the far southeast, with an enhanced chance of showers near this feature. Cool conditions over western Queensland, extending across much of interior through the remainder of the week.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday

Cloudy. Very high (90%) chance of showers and rain areas, most likely from late this morning. The chance of a thunderstorm near the coast this afternoon. Winds southeasterly 15 to 25 km/h. Daytime maximum temperatures 23 to 29.

Fire Danger - Low-Moderate

Sun protection 8:20am to 3:30pm, UV Index predicted to reach 11 [Extreme]
