Weather Situation

Ex-tropical cyclone Alfred lies over the far southern Gulf of Carpentaria and is expected to move southwards over land through today near the Northern Territory/Queensland border. The tropical low should then move westwards over the Northern Territory over the next few days. A surface trough extends from the northwest of the state to the southeast interior and will gradually shift westwards over the interior of the state over the next few days. An upper level trough should enter southwestern Queensland today before shifting slowly east over the state mid to late week. A high in the Tasman Sea will extend a ridge gradually northwards along the east Queensland coast over the next few days. A trough over the Coral Sea will most likely shift west northwest towards the east Queensland coast mid to late week.
