Weather Situation

A high pressure system in the Tasman Sea extends a ridge and a moist onshore wind flow along much of the east Queensland coast. The ridge will gradually relax during Tuesday as the high shifts further east over the Tasman Sea. A slow moving surface trough will extend over the interior of the state during the next few days. A series of upper troughs will also affect the interior of the state before most likely weakening late in the week. A new, large high pressure system will move east across the Great Australian Bight and southeastern Australia through the week, reaching the Tasman Sea during Thursday and strengthening the ridge about the east Queensland coast. The surface trough should then weaken and shift west from Thursday in response to the increasing ridging to the east.

Forecast for the rest of Monday 1 May

Mostly sunny. Medium (50%) chance of showers along the coastal fringe, most likely in the late morning and afternoon. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures in the mid to high 20s.
