Weather Situation

A high pressure system over southeastern Australia extends a ridge and fine conditions into much of the state. The high will shift slowly eastwards through the Tasman Sea over the weekend. A weak surface trough over the interior of the state will most likely deepen a bit in response to an upper level trough on Saturday before shifting slowly eastwards during Sunday. This trough will generate some instability and the chance of isolated storms over the southern inland with its passage this weekend before clearing off the southern coast early Monday morning. A new high pressure system will then move east over southern Australia through next week, extending a firm ridge and a cool, dry air mass into much of Queensland in the wake of the trough.
