Wind chill brings temps down

WINTER is upon us and as temperatures drop, a high remains the dominant weather feature for south-east Queensland, producing dry and clear conditions with widespread morning frosts.

An onshore component to the predominant south-easterly winds will trigger some isolated showers in southern parts of the Queensland coast, but these falls are expected to be generally light and isolated.

By Sunday a trough off the coast will increase showers, but there is considerable variation between the models as to how this system develops beyond the weekend.

Big seas along the coast are expected in coming days and high tides are expected to lead to further coastal erosion and the potential for seawater inundation in low coastal areas.
