North East Gulf of Carpentaria: Cape Keerweer to Crab Island

Issued at: 22/06/2017 16:20.

A slow moving high pressure system over southeastern Australia extends a firm ridge over Gulf of Carpentaria waters. The high will weaken through the remainder of today and Friday with a new, weak high centre developing over the southern Coral Sea during the weekend. The ridge over Gulf of Carpentaria waters will therefore gradually relax over the next few days.
