Weather Situation

Tropical cyclone Debbie lies in the western Coral Sea and is expected to move west-southwest towards the northeast Queensland coast over the remainder of the weekend and into early next week, with a possible crossing of the northeast Queensland coast late on Monday or early Tuesday. The remnants of the tropical system are then expected to track further inland into the northern and central interior early next week before likely shifting east towards the east of the state late next week. A weak ridge will extend along the southern and central east coast of Queensland to the south of the system for the next few days. A stable upper pattern will keep much of southern Queensland mostly fine over the remainder of the weekend and into early next week.
