QLD - COOLER DRIER AIR SURGING THROUGHOUT TODAY WITH A QUIET WEEK OF WEATHER TO COME.

Really not a whole lot happening weather wise over the coming days. We have a risk of frost in the south during the next few days, light frost at best but otherwise dry weather for much of the state with a high dominating proceedings.


Lets take a look and see whether we can find some weather of note.


Details below

Frost Risk Monday Morning

Frost stays just south of the border for Monday morning.

Frost Risk Tuesday Morning

Frost a higher chance as the high sits over the southern and southeast regions of the nation and we can see some of that creeping into southern QLD.

Rainfall for the next 10 days

After the showers clear the southeast and coastal areas, the weather is dry for a while with high pressure dominating. The onshore winds over the east coast may trigger a light shower or two from time to time, more extensive over the FNQ coast in onshore trade winds, but even here no full washouts with the air not as unstable.

00Z Euro Surface Pressure Pattern for the coming 10 days

After the high pressure system moves in to the southeast, that will see the rainfall and cloud cover decrease and the risk of frost return to large parts of inland Australia. Then we will see an introduction of warmer air throughout the nation with a northwest flow developing as fronts run underneath the weather passing in from west to east. So coastal areas of WA through southeast SA and southern VIC with western TAS likely to see showery periods. The heaviest of the rainfall over the SWLD of WA or western TAS. Onshore winds drive showers onto the east coast with light to moderate falls over the FNQ coast. The inland should remain largely dry for the coming 7 days at this time, likely 10 days with high pressure dominating. There may be some thundery showers develop next week with humidity returning.

00z Euro Rainfall for the coming 10 days

Rainfall coastal for the coming 10 days, the heaviest of that rainfall over the southwest of WA extending through to the western portions of TAS with gusty onshore westerly winds. Lighter rainfall from later this week over the southeast mainland but really the majority of the inland should be dry over the coming 7-10 days. There will be showers in onshore winds for the FNQ coast and a few showers developing over the tropics next week as humidity begins to rebuild.

00z Euro Precipitable Water Anomalies next 10 days

The drier air has surged through the nation's south and southeast and is working through the eastern and northern inland tonight and Monday. Another shot of moisture will come through the upper northwest winds ahead of a weakening cold front over SWLD of WA with that moisture drifting eastwards as the frontal weather tries to lift that up into areas of rain over TAS and showers for coastal areas of VIC. The moisture may begin to increase over northern Australia, with that moisture then sweeping southwest and south through the nation and then into the southeast inland after this period. That may be the next chance we see rainfall emerge across the nation.

I will have another update during the morning but the drier weather is set to stay for a number of days.
