STATE FORECAST: Current Situation: A slow moving surface trough extends from northwestern Queensland through to the southern interior. A weak ridge will persist about the east coast, though will begin to weaken during the weekend. The inland surface trough will start shifting to the west from today resulting in the chance of storms gradually shifting further west through the remainder of the week. Hot conditions are expected to persist over western areas.
Outlook for Friday: Fine and sunny over the far southwest of the state. A slight chance of showers and storms over central inland and remaining western parts of the state, more likely about the northwest. A slight to medium chance of a showers about the southeast, more likely during the morning. A slight to medium chance of showers about the northern tropics, with mostly fine conditions expected for the remaining east coast. Hot and sunny conditions will persist through the far west of the state. Moderate to fresh northwest to northeasterly in the interior of state, gusty at times in the southwest and central interior. Light to moderate southeast to northeasterly winds elsewhere in the state.
Outlook for Saturday: The inland surface trough is likely to begin moving north and east again as the next upper trough system moves eastwards across the southeast of the continent. The slight to medium chance of showers and storms across the southern inland to the northwest of the state on the eastern flank of this feature, with showers and storms possibly reaching close to the southeast coast during the evening. The central and east tropical coasts should be mostly fine with just the slight chance of a shower. Hot conditions will persist through the far west of the state.
Outlook for Sunday: The surface trough will extend from the northern Channel Country to the western Darling Downs and become mostly stationary, though the far southern portion will possibly shift east towards the southeast coast with a southerly change moving into the far southeast as a surface low develops over the central Tasman Sea. Showers and storms are likely to develop to the east of the trough system, more likely in the northwest and the southeast of the state. Mostly fine conditions will continue about eastern districts north of Rockhampton. Temperatures will remain above average across much of the interior though will cool slightly to the southwest of the trough.
