Forecast issued at 4:15 pm EST on Sunday 20 May 2018.

Weather Situation

A weak surface trough and dry line that lies over eastern Queensland will move slowly northeastwards over the coming days, moving off the southern coast during this evening and the central coast on Monday. A strong, slow-moving high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight will maintain a ridge and stable conditions across much of the state in the wake of the trough. This dry and static synoptic pattern will lead to cool nights and morning frosts across inland districts, particularly about the Maranoa, and Darling Downs and Granite Belt.
