Weather Situation

A high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge along the east coast of Queensland which will be reinforced during Saturday. A weak upper trough is moving eastwards across central and southern Queensland while a weak surface lies over the interior of the state. A more significant trough system and associated rain band is expected to move into southwestern Queensland during the weekend. This trough will then most likely weaken as it tracks east over the state during Monday and Tuesday. Cooler air will then spread through much of the state next week in the wake of the trough.

Forecast for the rest of Friday 6 May

Mostly clear. Light winds.
