Weather Situation

A high over the central Tasman Sea extends a firm ridge along the east coast of Queensland. The ridge will relax mid week as the high moves to the east of New Zealand and weakens. A surface trough extends through central Australia and is expected to shift east into southwestern Queensland today. The trough is then expected to remain slow moving over the southern interior of the state until late in the week.

Forecast for the rest of Tuesday 23 December

Mostly sunny. Slight (20%) chance of a shower near the coast in the morning. Light winds becoming east to southeasterly 15 to 20 km/h in the morning then becoming light in the evening. Daytime maximum temperatures around 30.
