Capricornia Coast Weather

Forecast

Capricornia Coast: St Lawrence to Burnett Heads

Issued at: 18/01/2018 15:51.

A high pressure system near the New South Wales coast extends a firm ridge into southern Queensland waters. The high and associated ridge will gradually weaken later today and during Friday. A new high is then likely to move into the Tasman Sea over the weekend, slightly reinforcing the ridge. A deep, slow moving low pressure system over the Tasman Sea is producing a long period south to southeasterly swell over southern waters. The swell will gradually abate later today and during Friday as the low weakens.
