Weather Situation

A high pressure system north of New Zealand extends a weak ridge towards the Queensland coast. An upper level trough and an associated surface trough will gradually move to the east during today with drier air then extending into western Queensland. A high should then build over the south of the continent towards the end of the week, extending a drier, cooler air mass into most of Queensland.

Forecast for the rest of Wednesday 24 August

Cloudy. Very high (90%) chance of rain, most likely in the late morning and afternoon. The chance of a thunderstorm during the morning and afternoon. Winds north to northwesterly 15 to 25 km/h turning west to southwesterly during the afternoon and evening. Daytime maximum temperatures 20 to 27.
