Wide Bay and Burnett Forecast

No warnings for Queensland

Forecast issued at 5:00 am EST on Thursday 19 September 2019.

Weather Situation

A weakening low pressure system off the northern New South Wales coast extends a near stationary surface trough onto the southern Queensland coast just south of Fraser Island. This feature is likely to remain near stationary today, and then drift southwards while decaying on Friday. A large high over the southeastern Tasman Sea extends a ridge along with east coast, which will strengthen slightly in the next few days as the southern Queensland trough decays. This will lead to a modest increase in moisture in the onshore flow along the Queensland coast and over eastern inland districts. An upper trough and associated surface cold front will move into far southwestern Queensland on Friday, and then move slowly eastwards while gradually weakening over the weekend. This feature may generate some isolated showers, patchy light rain areas and possible a few thunderstorms over the southern interior.

Forecast for the rest of Thursday

Partly cloudy. Patchy fog early this morning. Slight (20%) chance of a shower. The chance of a thunderstorm inland during this afternoon and evening. Light winds becoming northeasterly 15 to 25 km/h in the middle of the day then becoming light in the late evening. Daytime maximum temperatures in the mid to high 20s.
