Weather Situation

A coastal trough and a cooler, drier southeasterly wind change lies on the Sunshine Coast and will progress further northwards along the Wide Bay and Capricornia coasts on Sunday before weakening on Monday. A high will shift east over the Tasman Sea over the next few days, extending a ridge northwards along the east Queensland coast. An inland trough extends over the southern interior of the state and should shift a little further westwards during Sunday and Monday. A monsoon burst will likely extend through very far northern Queensland over the next couple of days before most likely focusing further westwards into the Top End with a low pressure system from about Tuesday or Wednesday. Temperatures will increase again through the southern half of the state mid week ahead of a new trough shifting east over the interior.
