Weather Situation

A surface trough, which extends from the northwest of the state through the central and southeastern interior, will move to the west over the next few days. A coastal trough over Capricornia Waters will move north along the east coast today and Friday. A high pressure system over southeastern Australia will shift eastwards into the Tasman Sea and will extend a ridge along the east Queensland coast in the wake of the coastal trough. Hot temperatures will persist over northern and central districts, with muggy conditions continuing over the northern half of the state. A firm ridge and southeasterly wind flow should gradually extend northwards over eastern districts today and Friday, providing a gradual decrease in temperature and humidity.
