A slow-moving high pressure system over the western Tasman Sea will maintain a firm ridge over southern Queensland waters over the next few days. A surface trough lies through the southern Peninsula waters coast and will remain slow-moving over the next few days. A weak, slow-moving upper trough lies through central Queensland and is expected to intensify and shift northeast on Thursday, most likely contracting east off the coast on Friday. A low pressure system over the Coral Sea will develop further through the week but is expected to remain well offshore from the Queensland coast.
