Weather Situation

A large, slow moving high pressure system in the Tasman Sea extends a firm ridge along the Queensland coast, which will remain in place well into next week. A surface trough, which extends from the Gulf Country down through the central and southern interior, will slowly deepen while shifting westwards this weekend. Upper troughs will move east across southern Queensland this weekend, maintaining instability over the southeastern quarter of the state. Showers and thunderstorms are likely across the southern and central interior, extending further northeast into Sunday, then becoming more widespread across southwestern, central and northern Queensland next week. Cloud cover will result in below average maximum temperatures over the southeast quarter of the state this weekend.
