Weather Situation

A surface trough extends from the northern interior through the central interior and into the southeastern inland of Queensland with moist air to its east and very dry air to its west. The trough will move further east through today and should move off the far southeast coast late this evening. The surface trough will then shift north through southern waters during Friday. An upper trough will move northwards towards southern Queensland through today, increasing instability over the southeast of the state. This upper trough should then shift east into the Coral Sea during Friday. A high pressure system will move east into southeastern Australia on Friday, gradually extending a firm ridge onto the east Queensland coast. A ridge will persist through much of Queensland over the weekend with very dry air over the interior.
