Forecast

Fraser Island Coast: Sandy Cape to Double Island Point

Issued at: 22/06/2017 16:19.

A complex low pressure system in the Tasman Sea will continue shifting southeast through the remainder of today and Friday, whilst a slow moving high pressure system over southeastern Australia will start to weaken. Winds and waves over southern Queensland waters will therefore decrease further as a result. Another weak high centre will likely develop over the southern Coral Sea over the weekend. A series of weak surface troughs will likely move through far southern Queensland waters during the weekend.

Check for Lightning Strikes

Weather radars show rainfall but apart from very dark colours in heavy rainfall echoes, radars don’t show if the rain is coming from storms. To see if there are storms associated with the rain check this lightning tracker.
