Weather Situation

A belt of high pressure will persist over southern and central Queensland through to early next week, maintaining a dry air mass and mostly clear conditions over much of Queensland. An onshore wind flow will result in the slight to medium chance of showers about the east tropical coast. A surface trough will enter the far west of the state late Sunday and then shift east through Monday, most likely weakening while shifting off the southern coast through Tuesday. Some cloud may accompany the trough passage though with just the slight chance of a shower expected over southern districts at this stage given limited low level moisture. Morning frosts will continue over the southeastern interior and near higher ground of the central interior for the next few mornings. Minimum temperatures will then increase towards more average conditions early next week. Maximum temperatures will remain well above the July average over much of the state, particularly through the interior.

Forecast for the rest of Friday 28 July
