Weather Situation

A broad area of low pressure lies over central Australia with a surface trough close to the border of southwest Queensland. The surface trough will move gradually eastwards over the next few days. A high in the Tasman Sea will remain slow-moving over the next few days and extend a ridge along the east coast of Queensland. A hot airmass is expected to linger over much of the interior of the state during the coming days, whilst sea breezes will ameliorate the hot conditions near the southeast coast.
