Weather Situation

A weak high pressure centre will remain slow moving over far southeastern Queensland during the next few days, maintaining a firm ridge over the northeast Queensland coast. The high will weaken during the weekend as a new high develops over southwestern Australia. A surface trough will shift east over the state during the weekend, most likely moving off the southern Queensland coast early on Monday. A series of upper troughs will extend cloud and possible patchy light rain into southwestern Queensland during the forecast period.

Forecast for the rest of Thursday 28 May

Partly cloudy. Medium (40%) chance of showers about Fraser Island during the morning and afternoon. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Light winds. Daytime maximum temperatures in the low to mid 20s.
