Weather Situation

A high over the northern Tasman Sea will extend a weak ridge along the tropical east coast of Queensland over the next few days. A surface trough lies through the southern interior of the state and will remain slow moving over the southern interior on Tuesday whilst weakening. Temperatures will remain well above the September average over much of the southern half of the state and the northwest through the remainder of the week, although a coastal trough may provide a slight drop in temperature along the southeast coast on Tuesday and Wednesday. A new, vigorous surface trough will most likely enter the southwest of the state late on Wednesday and move east across the interior of the state on Thursday, resulting in enhanced fire dangers. The southerly flow in the wake of the trough will likely provide a large drop in temperature to areas in the far southwest of the state from Thursday, while hot to very hot conditions will persist over remaining southern districts.
