Peninsula Coast Weather

Forecast

Peninsula Coast: Sharp Point to Cape Melville

Issued at: 22/06/2017 22:00.

A slow moving high pressure system over southeastern Australia extends a firm ridge over northern Queensland waters. The high will gradually 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 northern Queensland waters will therefore gradually relax from Friday.
