Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Monday 20 May 2019.

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea will move only very slowly eastwards over the next few days and will continue to extend a ridge along the east coast of Queensland. Onshore winds and showers will therefore continue along the east coast and adjacent inland over the next several days, with more frequent showers about the Wet Tropics. Much of the interior of the state should remain fine and partly cloudy. Overnight temperatures will remain very mild and several degrees above average across the state.

Forecast for the rest of Monday

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower about Fraser Island, near zero chance elsewhere. Light winds.

Tuesday 21 May

Partly cloudy. Medium (40%) chance of showers along the coastal fringe, most likely at night. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds becoming east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the late afternoon. Overnight temperatures falling to between 12 and 16 with daytime temperatures reaching the low to mid 20s.
