Forecast issued at 4:45 am EST on Monday 21 August 2017.
A weakening high pressure system over southeastern Australia extends a ridge over north Queensland waters. The high will shift slowly northeast and should move into the northern Tasman Sea late tonight. The ridge will therefore relax on Monday, particularly over waters south of Cape Tribulation. A slow moving surface trough will develop over the northern and central interior of Queensland from Tuesday.
